The council also approved the National Social Investment Program Establishment Bill 2022 which will give legal backing to the national social investment program as an agency with a mandate of fulfilling the President’s agenda to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by 2023.

Approval for the National flood emergency preparedness and response plan was in response to the death of 12 more persons following floods in Jigawa State.
