Job Title: Compliant and Feedback Assistant

Location: Tangaza, Rabah, and Illela LGAs, Sokoto

Employment Type: Contract

Slot: 18 Openings

Contract Duration: 3 Months
Expected Start Date: As soon as possible

Project Implementation and Justification

  • Northwest Nigeria is facing a food insecurity and malnutrition situation which continues to get worse because of banditry and conflicts between herders and farmers on one hand; and on the other hand, due to a volatile economic situation defined by inflation and devaluation of the Naira among others. The result of the recently concluded March 2024 Cadre Harmonise analysis indicates that 29 percent (6,285,032 individuals) of the estimated population in the three northwestern states are in CH phases 3-4; of which about 8 percent are in Sokoto. Since the year 2020, WFP had implemented several activities in response to the food and nutrition insecurity ravaging the NW of Nigeria.
  • WFP plans to distribute 888MT of the wheat grain received from Ukraine to assist 39,084 of the vulnerable affected population in northwest Nigeria covering Sokoto for three months starting from the onset of the 2024 lean season, the month of July. This is part of an integrated approach that the WFP initiated to combine with other WFP ongoing/planned interventions to make a maximum impact on the food needs, well-being, and resilience of the affected population.
