According to Femi Ifaturoti, the Director General of the Bureau of Social Services, who coordinates the State Operations Coordination Unit (SOCU) of the Youth Employment and Social Support Operation (YESSO) in the State of Osun, the community Based Targeting mechanism is a viable tool which has completely revolutionized the process of targeting beneficiaries for any Social intervention program in that it addresses the lingering headaches of double dipping, errors of inclusion and exclusion, and deliberate cronyism in the administration of social support programs.
