“We have sorted that out with the office of the Accountant General of the Federation,” she said.

“It has been a very tedious process but as at the last count, we have paid all the beneficiaries after the series of processes.

“Now, we have moved to the Batch C. Currently, the Ministry is about concluding the enrollment of 1,000,000 Batch-C applicants in two streams of 500,000 in the first instance and another 500,000 later.

“For the Batch A and B, as you are aware, they have exited and they have been put into programme in partnership with the Central Bank of Nigeria for them to be engaged in meaningful employment or trade.”
