ASSESSMENT OF NATIONAL POVERTY ERADICATION PROGRAMME (NAPEP). A CASE STUDY OF FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY ABUJA. (1999-2004)

 

ABSTRACT

The research set out to assess the performance of the (NAPEP) programme and its impact on the alleviation of poverty, with a special focus on FCT, Abuja. Data were collected through NAPEP bulletins, progress reports, pamphlets and questionnaires administered on the staff and beneficiaries of NAPEP programme in FCT Abuja. The central objective of this study is to examine whether the policy of NAPEP in FCT Abuja has been able to generate more employment, higher productivity and to improve their economic well being of the people of Abuja since its adoption. In the process of the study three hypotheses was formulated and tested they are as follows: That the adoption of National Poverty Eradication programme (NAPEP) has not increased employment generation in Federal Capital Territory Abuja. That introduction of National Poverty Eradication programme has not enhanced productivity in Federal Capital Territory Abuja That adoption of National Poverty Eradication programme (NAPEP) as an efficient economic policy has not enhanced the economic well being of the people in Federal Capital Territory Abuja. For the purpose of the study both primary and secondary data were used. A survey method which entails the use of questionnaires provide primary data, while secondary data were obtained through the examination and extraction of relevant information from NAPEP documents, journals, newspapers, magazines, conference papers, books, radio and television commentaries. The study found out that the programme is bed deviled by some problems, which are militating against its success. These include, poor monitoring of the programme, irregular payment of beneficiaries and training of officers, lack of commitment on the part of both the participant and the organizers, non involvement of Non – governmental organizations (NGOs) bureaucratic bottlenecks, among others. Based on these problems, the study however, found out that in spite of the level of employment opportunities generated by NAPEP, it has not enhanced the level of productivity and their economic well being of the beneficiaries. The study, therefore, recommended that the National Poverty Eradication Programme (NAPEP) in FCT Abuja and Nigeria at large should be properly funded and this fund should be made available in good time. The government should involve the poor, who are the stakeholders from the planning to the implementing stages of the programmes, the government should involve and ensure the participation of the Non – governmental organization, the private sector, local and international agencies, the community at large by creating an enabling and conducive environment; the agricultural, industrial, power and other solid minerals sector should be revitalized to create efficient employment opportunities, improve economic well being and enhance productivity.
