Ahead of the commencement of the disbursement of the support funds, an enrollment training exercise that will aid the capacity-building of the nominated 186 Cash Transfer Facilitators (CTFs) and equip them for the task took place in Lagos on Tuesday at Ostrall Hall, Ikeja. 

Speaking during the training programme, the Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment in Lagos State, Hon. Akinyemi Ajigbotafe informed that the initiative was part of efforts of the Federal Government to mitigate the economic shocks arising from Government's Policies, Natural Disasters, or Pandemics that negatively affected rural and urban livelihoods in Nigeria.

He urged the Cash Transfer Facilitators (CTFs), to see themselves as grassroots mobilizers, foot soldiers, and ambassadors of the State of Excellence, who must discharge their duties as expected without fear or favour to anyone.
