This program is a component of the administration’s non-kinetic approach to addressing the issues of abduction and banditry in the area.

This was announced by Alhaji Mohammed Idris Malagi, Minister of Information and National Orientation, in his keynote speech at the 2023 Jamaatu Nasril Islam Central Council meeting, which was held in Minna, Niger State.

He said that the Fulako program, which would be implemented in six Northern states—Zamfara, Kebbi, Kaduna, Katsina, Niger, and Benue—is President Tinubu’s special humanitarian reaction to the effects of banditry in the impacted regions.

“The initiative is comprehensive and embodied in the Renewed Hope Agenda, which aims to achieve food security, ensure national security, reform the economy, unleash the potential of our natural resources, construct infrastructure with a focus on social and health investment, and accelerate innovation and diversification while enhancing governance delivery,” stated Malagi.

Speaking about the 2023 budget estimate that President Bola Tinubu had brought before the National Assembly, Malagi disclosed that N75 billion had been set aside for palliative care initiatives and the Presidential Conditional Grant Scheme.

The minister emphasized that the Federal Government is still dedicated to helping Nigerians in Abuja and all 36 states, and that all Nigerians must work together to make sure that these efforts are successful.
