The Executive Secretary of the National Lottery Trust Fund, Dr Bello Maigari, has expressed the agency’s commitment to poverty reduction in the country.
He stated this during a courtesy visit by the leadership of the Renewed Hope Ambassadors’ Forum for President Tinubu/Shettima, recently in Abuja.
“We have been having retreats on this particular vision and the way forward, and we as an organisation have taken charge of the few areas, where our agency is required to make an impact, especially in the area of education, skills acquisition, poverty reduction and promoting the health and wellbeing of the nation.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has done his part by sharing with his vision with the eight-point agenda. It is left for all of us, at different levels of government, especially in the ministries, departments and agencies of government to see to the actualisation of this agenda,” Maigari said.
NLTF recently conducted surveys and engaged field officers to identify needs across the country.
He added that the NLTF had recorded significant progress towards the provision of vital medical equipment in primary healthcare centres, and the provision of rural water supply while supporting government educational sectors across the country.
“We will continue to partner with all MDAs to ensure that we achieve the vision of President Tinubu, in promoting the Renewed Hope Agenda from the lottery sector.”
Speaking earlier, the National Coordinator of the forum, Abbas Mustapha, said they were in the agency to seek sustainable working relationships and support from the organisation.
Mustapha said the forum was part of stakeholders of Nigeria’s project as well as advocacy on good governance and leadership to promote Tinubu’s key agenda.
