She said initially, only three local governments representing the three senatorial districts in the state, were benefiting from the programme.
Bappa said that the three pioneer LGAs were, Balanga in Gombe South, Yamaltu/Deba in Gombe Central and Nafada in Gombe North senatorial district.
He added that the pioneer LGAs beneficiaries received N20,000 each while the remaining eight, which were recently included, received N10,000 each for March and April.
“We don’t have items for palliatives, what we are doing now is only paying conditional cash transfer.
“We have now covered a total number of five LGAs, remaining six ,” she said.
