Nigerians that have more than N5,000 in their bank accounts will not receive the Federal Government’s palliatives to mitigate the effects of the present lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Farouq, disclosed this in a chat with State House correspondents in Abuja, as she spoke of the modalities being put in place for disbursements.

She said her ministry intended to focus on the urban poor as it carries out President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive on the distribution of palliatives.

She said: “You are aware that the president in his broadcast of Monday, 13th April, directed that we expand the beneficiaries of the conditional cash transfer by one million and in this regard, we are going to focus more now on the urban poor.
