Oyo State Govt to Partner UNICEF To End Poverty Through Cash Transfer

Oyo State Government and the United Nation Children’s Funds (UNICEF) on Thursday, agreed to tackle poverty, through cash transfer to the vulnerable and the extremely poor in the society.

The Commissioner for Economic and Budget Planning, Prof. Musbau Adetunji Babatunde said the Social Protection Policy programme will alleviate extreme poverty and enhance sustainable economic growth in Oyo State.

He said the critical role social protection plays in combating poverty and supporting the vulnerable necessitated the validation of Oyo State Social Protection Policy.

Babatunde said this after a 2-day Validation of Oyo State Social Protection Policy organised by the Oyo State Ministry of Economic and Budget Planning in collaboration with UNICEF held in Ibadan.

Prof. Musbau Adetunji Babatunde said, one of the cardinal points of the Governor Seyi Makinde led administration is to tackle poverty and to make life better for residents of Oyo State.

On behalf of the Oyo State Government, he admonished members of the committee to reflect the essence of inter-agency collaboration required in tackling problems associated with poverty and vulnerability in the State.

Meanwhile, representative of UNICEF in Oyo State, Mrs. Hope Oduma commended Engr. Seyi Makinde’s administration for its willingness and commitment to ensure the realisation of the social protection policy.
