The Commissioner of the National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA), Abu Bockarie Kokofele, has stated that the agreement signed with the Rokel Commercial Bank makes provision for the latter to be a payment service provider for the implementation of the country’s flagship project, the Social Safety Net.
He furthered that the Government’s declaration of a State of Emergency facilitated funding for emergency cash transfer to households with vulnerable informal sector workers, including those working in micro and small enterprises and low paid workers in the service sector in regional headquarters.
Mr. Kokofele said that part of the Social Safety Net was laid aside for the response of emergency situations in the country.
He added that the implementation of the net should have started, but that considering the essence of transparency and accountability in development, the Commission and its partners have to follow all processes including targeting mechanisms.
