The Kaduna Social Protection Accountability Coalition (KADSPAC) has appealed to the Kaduna State Government to approve the state Social Protection Policy Implementation Plan, 2021 to 2023.
KADSPAC in a statement by its Chairperson, Ms Jessica Bartholomew, said a coalition of civil society and media, working to strengthen transparency and accountability in the delivery of inclusive social protection noted that 2021 is almost gone and the plan is yet to be approved.
She explained that the dream, according to the government was to have a Kaduna State, where the poorest and most vulnerable residents are supported to live productive, fulfilling, and dignifying lives through a system that leaves no one behind.
The KADSPAC’s Chairperson who noted that the policy mapped out five measures to achieve the dream and objective of ensuring no citizen falls below the poverty line, added that the measures are social assistance; social insurance; labour market intervention; social care; and legislation, regulations, and institutional framework.
A draft implementation had been developed as a systematic approach to the delivery of social protection intervention through the five measures to the residents of the state.
The plan, if approved, would set in motion steps towards fulfilling government commitment to give the poor and vulnerable in the state a life of dignity.
