Information emerging from the coordinator of the Ondo State Social Security Residency Card scheme, Mr Tunde Yadeka has made it known that, following their participation in the registration exercise of the state’s Social Security Residency Card Scheme, otherwise known as Kaadi Igbeayo, over 600,000 residents of Ondo State will soon begin to enjoy unfettered social services of government.
Yadeka, disclosing this at the weekend, said the residency card will serve as an interface in all transactions between the government and residents and added that it will allow all residents equal access to governments social and welfare services and allow government at every point to monitor the distribution of such services even to the remotest parts of the state.
His words: “The State Residency Card project is primarily purposed for service delivery management and not for identification. The card will make it possible for the collation of information necessary for planning and executing all kinds of people oriented and welfare projects.”
Giving an insight into the process culminating into the execution stage, he divulged that the state government in tandem with global standards and best practice benchmarks, contacted and related with several international agencies in the planning stages of the project adding that the responses of the contacted organisations , UNDP, DFID and UNFID, confirmed the novelty of the project.
