This report presents findings from third-party monitoring of the National Social Investment Programmes (N-SIP). It focuses on three of the four programmes, namely: Home-Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP), Job Creation Programme (N-Power), and the Government Enterprise Empowerment Programme (GEEP), across all the States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT (excluding Ekiti State), for the period May to November 2018.
Data analysed in the report represents findings in 21 out of 36 States and the FCT where representative data was obtained. It is worth mentioning that only one Civil Society Organisation (CSO), was assigned per State. We understand that this might have an impact in the representativeness of the data and reports given the extensive, geographic nature of States and the limitation caused by logistics to cover all Local Government Areas (LGAs). For most States, CSOs attempted monitoring in 70% of LGAs in assigned States. This is in addition to limited funding for commute within the States and the initial lack of access to information on beneficiaries of the programmes
This report is limited to data accessible to Third-Party Monitors (TPMs) at the time of monitoring. It does not reflect the total number of beneficiaries of the programmes as stated by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Subsequent publications of this report will be updated once collation is complete in States not featured.
