The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu has declared that the advertised “Federal government’s N50, 000 Child Support Fund for All Nigerian Parents…” is fake.
The Minister in a statement signed by her Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Rasheed Olanrewaju Zubair said, the circulating bogus child support scheme and the accompanying link are fake as they did not emanate from the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
She stated that all social intervention schemes of the Ministry are well documented in the public domain and are brought to the notice of Nigerians through proper channels.
“The so-called ‘Child Support Scheme’ is fake and is not and can never be any of the Ministry’s schemes.
“The general public is hereby alerted that undesirable elements whose sole agenda is to mislead and defraud unsuspecting Nigerians are behind the fake scheme advertisement and the link”, the Minister said.
The further stated that security agents have swung into action to unmask the unpatriotic elements behind the intended scam while Nigerians are advised to ignore the link to avoid being defrauded of their hard-earned money.
