The senator representing Cross River North Senatorial District in the Upper Chamber, Senator Ben Ayade will on Friday, 1st August, 2014 begin a direct financial intervention program called “Direct Cash Top Up” DICATOP, for his constituents.

According to a statement from the Special Assistant to Ayade, the Senator’s focus “falls within the framework of his constituents’ fundamental needs” while DICATOP “is to augment and assist daily petty but fundamental needs of the people of Cross River North Senatorial District in the area of pupils’s school uniform, school meal, transportation for those to attend interview, the sick with doctor’s prescription for drugs, those that require medical tests, replacement of bad motor/ motor cycle tyres, purchase of mosquito treated nets to prevent mosquito bites and malaria etc.”

According to the statement, “Senator Ayade who has never changed his telephone line since the introduction of MTN network is constantly faced with barrage of calls from his constituents demanding for assistance in these areas of daily petty but fundamental needs.”

According to Dr. Odey, “It is in response to these barrage of calls and the sensitivities of his boss to the yearnings of his constituents that has propelled him to introduce yet another program called Direct Cash Top Up Program (DICATOP) to address these petty daily fundamental needs with a presumption that the beneficiaries have some cash but needed a little support to enable them meet their needs at that material time.”

Odey further stated that 120 persons across the 5 LGAs of Ogoja, Obudu, Bekwarra, Obanlikwu and Yala would be shortlisted monthly as beneficiaries.

The statement noted that monthly payments of cash to beneficiaries will take place at Senator Ayade’s Constituency office, at No. 10 General Hospital Road Igoli Ogoja and list of beneficiaries would be published/announced regularly.
