The Lagos State Government has approved the payment of N5000 monthly to residents of the State.
But first, the state government approved the establishment of the State Cash Transfer Unit, SCTU, for the National Cash Transfer programme.
This was confirmed by the State Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs. Yetunde Arobieke, on Thursday.

The cleared beneficiaries are from Amuwo Odofin, Apapa, Badagry, Epe, Ibeju Lekki and Lagos Island.
