According to her, the federal government has already disbursed 60% of the expected one million beneficiaries across Nigeria’s 774 local government areas without repayment obligations.

The minister stated.

“The disbursement process is ongoing, and we have allocated about 60% of the 1 million grants.

“Applicants can track the status of disbursements per Local Government Area at grant.fedgrantandloan.gov.ng/learn-more/dis.

In her statement, she acknowledged challenges in the late disbursement such as incorrect data submissions, duplicate applications, and spurious entries, which have slowed down the process.
