Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on numerous occasion has announced that the NPP government would see every constituency given US$1 million in poverty alleviation scheme.

This will be part of a proposed US$275 million allocation per year to tackle issues relating to infrastructural development and poverty alleviation in rural and deprived communities across the country.
