Twitter users recently asked the Federal Government to identify the poor Nigerians , who benefited from the $ 103 . 64 m Abacha loot, it claimed to have disbursed.
It was reported last week that the Special Adviser to the President on Social Investments , Mrs Maryam Uwais , said that the Federal Government has been channelling the recovered Abacha loot and the International Development Association / World Bank credit towards programmes and policies designed to address the plight of poor and vulnerable Nigerians .
Uwais said that the funds , which were specifically being disbursed to beneficiaries of the National Cash Transfer Programme, a component of the National Social Investment Programme, noted that the gesture was positively changing the fortune of many Nigerians .
Since the news broke , Nigerians have been wondering and asking questions about the beneficiaries of the loot. While some asked the FG, why they didn ’ t benefit from the largesse , others asked that the beneficiaries be identified .
