The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, said it has begun disbursement of the Presidential Conditional Grant Scheme to verified applicants.

The government, through the Bank of Industry, had said it would be disbursing three categories of funding totalling N200bn to support manufacturers and businesses across the country.

Giving a progress report on X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Doris Anite, disclosed that some beneficiaries had received their grants, adding that another disbursement will be made to verified applicants by Friday, April 19.

She said: “We are pleased to inform you that the disbursement process for the Presidential Conditional Grant Programme has officially commenced.

“Some beneficiaries have already received their grants, marking the beginning of our phased disbursement strategy.

“By Friday, April 19, 2024, a significant disbursement will be made to a substantial number of verified applicants.

“It is essential to understand that disbursements are ongoing, and not all applicants will receive their grants on this initial date.

“However, rest assured that all verified applicants will eventually receive their grants in subsequent phases.”

Soliciting patience from stakeholders, Anite added, “the President Bola Tinubu administration understands the importance of these grants in supporting the livelihoods and businesses of our citizens, and this is why we are committed to ensuring a smooth and transparent process.

In collaboration with telecommunications providers, we have successfully resolved the initial delays in sending out shortcodes for NIN verification and application continuation.
