President Muhammadu Buhari has spent over N45 billion on various social intervention programmes of the federal government in his home state of Katsina.

According to Governor Aminu Masari, the federal government’s social intervention programmes is helping to improve the lives of vulnerable people in the state.

Mr Masari revealed this on Tuesday while launching the Katsina Health Workers’ Plaza and Guest House built by the state Medical and Health Workers’ Union of Nigeria (MHWUN).

“Going by our culture and tradition here in the northern part of the country, the older you become the more responsibilities you shoulder because we have no social security system.

“The extended family system is the only social security net we have until recently when President Buhari started introducing social interventions.

“This is the foundation for social security where there is direct support to the most vulnerable people of at least N5,000 each per month.

Masari added that the state government spends N1.2 billion monthly on the payment of pensions for local governments and state retirees and that he plans to clear all arrears of pensions and gratuities before the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
