Coordinator of Aisha Buhari Foundation, Dr Kamal Muhammad who represented Wife of the President at the event said the cash transfer initiative is in line with the vision of Future Assured Programme on improving the health and well-being of women and children. The transfer, he said, will lead to an improvement in household income, which will in-turn improve feeding and nutritional status, school attendance and quality of education as well as improved health status of the family, among other benefits. These benefits, he said will contribute to the attainment of related Sustainable Development Goals.
