The Canadian Government has expressed readiness to support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda by supporting the humanitarian and poverty alleviation response in Nigeria.

The Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Jamie Christoff, made this known when he led his team to visit the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu at her office in Abuja.

Ambassador Christoff said the Canadian Government has committed to put in One Hundred and Fifty-Two Million Dollars as part of their assistance to the country for various programs.

However, a small portion has been earmarked for humanitarian response.

He said some of the general funds will be spent in Nigeria to focus on vulnerable women and young girls across the country.

The ambassador lauded the establishment of the Humanitarian and Poverty Alleviation Trust Fund, saying it is a welcome development that will aid in better coordination with the government at the driver’s seat.
