NASIMS: Humanitarian Ministry Inaugurates Steering Committee

The Nigerian Government has inaugurated a steering committee for the Implementation of the National Social Investment Management Systems Project, NASIMS.

NASIMS is a platform that encompasses all the National Social Investment Programmes, including N-Power, National Home Grown School Feeding, GEEP, Conditional Cash Transfer and others and provides a singular data portal for all the programs.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya  Farouq inaugurated the Steering Committee in Abuja, Nigeria.

She appreciated the Committee members for their acceptance to work towards collating  data for all National Social Investment Programmes in the country.

“I hope we will work very closely together to ensure that the project meets its intended conclusion. The project coordinators and initiators have put in quite a lot of work and collated so much data before this inauguration and I am impressed with their efforts . 

“I commend them and sincerely hope that from today, we will move with the speed of light to cover up for lost time.  I hope the committee will give the necessary guidance to the management  on the direction of the project.  I urge all the committee members to work together to ensure that we achieve all that this project is expected to achieve.”

The Minister was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Bashir Nura Alkali.

Committee’s assurance
Responding, a Committee member and Director National Information Technology Development Agency, Dr Usman Abdullahi said that due to the critical nature of the project and its importance to the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration, the committee would endeavor to work relentlessly.

“I want to assure the Permanent Secretary and the committee, of NITDA’s commitment to the success of this project.  It is a critical national project and we will do everything to ensure that it succeeds,” he stated.

Also speaking, another member of the committee, David Ibhawoh of Fourcore Technology Solutions said that institutionalising the project would be the core mandate of the committee by having a singular port that houses information for social growth and development.

He said; “As a private sector organisation, we are tools responsible for the actualisation of this dream. We are to provide a one-stop shop for all the National Social Investment programmes as a veritable tool to ensure that we reach  the poorest of the poor in the society. 

“We will provide an institutional framework within the ministry to ensure that Nigerians are the key beneficiaries at the end,”
