Reason for Cash Transfer Payment 2021/2022 Delay
Shehu said that the delay in payment was due to system strengthening process in the project to improve implementation and further enhance service delivery.
She said that it was also to ensure value for money, transparency and accountability.
Shehu further explained that the systems strengthening revolves around tweaking the payment modalities to respond to cashless realities, security concerns and digitization of the payment processes.
When will NCTO Cash Transfer Payment 2021 Begin
30% of NCTO operations have been digitized and will recommence payment to its beneficiaries next week.
The national coordinator noted that some states might not start receiving payment on August 23 due to some challenges.
