The second wave of registration Mop-up for Rapid Response Register (RRR) is scheduled to commence in Kogi state Monday 7th, March 2022 and will last for two weeks.
This was made known by the Kogi Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning, Hon. Asiwaju Asiru Idris in a press release made available to newsmen in Lokoja.
According to the release, the registration he said which is online will hit the airwave on Monday morning, adding that the codes for individual urban and semi-urban wards and communities approved by NASSCO and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian, Disaster Management and Social Development have been distributed to respective Local government SOCU Desk officers and CDOs for distribution and sensitization.
Hon. Asiwaju further disclosed that the USSD code of 969community code# is meant for each community, ward and local government selected. The registration process is through dual means of SMS and Call using the codes.
The release further emphasised that Kogites are advised to quickly obtain the respective community codes of their residence from their Local Government SOCU Desk officers and CDOs for immediate registration through MTN, Airtel, and Etisalat network providers.
He stressed that a successful applicant is expected to obtain an ID immediately after registration and ensure the ID is kept safe for further validation and documentation subsequently for final payment of Covid-19 Cash Transfer on monthly basis.
As contained in the statement, the Kogi State government urged all Kogites to log on with their respective community codes to ensure massive registration to maximize the benefits of opportunity of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Yahaya Bello’s administration.
You would recall that the World Bank in collaboration with the Federal Government deployed a satellite imagery that captured some urban and semi-urban wards and communities early this for RRR implementation to mitigate the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on people’s income which has made life more difficult. It’s in a bid to ease the hardship that cash-transfer response strategy was employed to rapidly capture people for cash transfer benefits
