The Kaduna State government on Thursday said that it spent N1 billion in its first phase of Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) across the state.

The state SURE-P chairman, Timothy Gandu, made this known when he addressed newsmen at the commencement of the screening exercise of the programme in Zaria.

Gandu, who is also the commissioner for economic planning, explained that the amount covered purchase of buses, taxis and tricycles which were meant for onward distribution to beneficiaries.
