alleviation scheme whereby #5,000 will be paid ten thousand
beneficiaries is well protected.
“It’s an ongoing thing, we didn’t just start today, today’s program is
meant to alleviate the suffering of the people, to help them in
keeping body and soul together, this is the one for the widows, we
have done for people in some other sectors that needs to be supported.
“It’s a way of life, we are doing it continuously and we’ll not stop.
The #5,000 monthly stipend we talked about, it’s about our poverty
alleviation package of #5,000 per person, though it cannot go round at
a time, we will ensure we maximize the number of beneficiaries from
the widow’s category, we’ll make sure they get the stipend, and on
time too”, the governor said.

to make it a regular exercise.
