alleviation in Niger state.The paper adopts a quantitative method using PLS-SEM path
modeling to establish the statistical relationship between conditional cash transfer
programs on poverty alleviation in the state.Thestudy has shown that conditional cash
transfer programs are signicant to poverty alleviation. The socio-economic assessment
of the respondents further justied the above assumption. Government anti-poverty
intervention programs have the tendencies of alleviating poverty if the stakeholders
could implement an appropriate policy a framework that is capable of enhancing
transparency and accountability among all the concern stakeholders involved. The paper
further observed that the high rate of poverty in Nigeriais connected to the systemic
failures of the administrative system in the country such as abuse of the rule of law,
political instability, corruption, misplacement of priority, inadequate budgetary
allocation among others. The study recommends for intensive efforts among all agencies
