Dr. Betta Edu, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, has warned Nigerians about the presence of a webpage aimed at swindling Nigerians.
She stated in an Abuja statement on Tuesday that the “FG Humanitarian and Poverty Alleviation Trust Fund Registration Portal is fake” and did not come from the ministry or any other government body.
“The aforementioned portal is a forgery, created by unsavory elements with the sole intent of defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.”
”There will never be a portal from either the ministry, departments, and agencies of government or its partners to apply to access funds from the humanitarian and poverty alleviation trust fund.
”The general public is, therefore, advised to discountenance the link being circulated,” the minister said.
