Umar-Farouk said: “It is worthy to state that at the onset of the pandemic, the National Social Register (NSR) contained data of over 2.6 million poor and vulnerable households, representing over 11 million individuals in the 34 States and the FCT.

“With the accelerated registration and rapid expansion, the NSR has as at June 30, grown to 3.7 million, equivalent to 15.5 million individuals in the 36 states and FCT.”

      Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

      Together with every little thing that seems to be developing inside this particular subject material, all your opinions are generally rather refreshing. Nonetheless, I appologize, because I can not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everyone that your remarks are generally not totally rationalized and in simple fact you are your self not really thoroughly certain of your argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

      Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      I have learned some important matters through your website post. One other stuff I would like to state is that there are plenty of games out there designed specifically for preschool age little ones. They contain pattern acknowledgement, colors, pets, and styles. These usually focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This will keep a child engaged without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks
