Many people are not yet aware what SDGS office, Imo State, does and the importance of utilizing every opportunity arising from the office for the purpose of human empowerment and poverty alleviation.

Some of this programs are already going on in our LGAS, just recently, the office concluded the federal government conditional cash transfer of 20,000 to over 3000 Imo women in 9 local government areas of Imo State, but on my chart with her in her office recently, she revealed that federal government has decided to make the cash transfer to go round the 27th LGAs of Imo State.

The monitoring of how batch C Npower Imo State Beneficiaries are doing and rectifying those who have issues of deployment by her office, is on top of gear.
