BOMBSHELL: "I Won’t Pay N5000 to Unemployed Nigerians!" – Buhari

Published

In a shocking development, President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he will refuse to honour his pledge to grant N5000 to each unemployed Nigerian.
He made the remark while speaking in Saudi Arabia as he continued his visit to the Middle East over the weekend.
Buhari said he would rather focus on funding the construction of infrastructure, as well as education, agriculture and mining to create employment opportunities for able bodied young men.
President Muhammadu Buhari may lose considerable support due to his announcement
This largesse N5,000 for the unemployed, I have got a slightly different priority,” the president said.
I would rather do the infrastructure, the school and correct them and empower agriculture, mining so that every able bodied person can go and get work instead of giving N5,000 to those who don’t work.
The pledge to jobless citizens was one of the pillars of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) election campaign last year and will likely be met with a furious reaction by voters.
APC Senators had already voted to reject the N5000 policy , however this is the first time that Buhari has stated that the initiative will not be implemented.
Political commentators have long speculated that the policy would not be implemented, however the decision may be particularly embarrassing for Buhari as his own wife Aisha said her husband must make the payment.
The federal government had agreed to finally make the payment in November 2015, but the government decided to stall and wait until the new year.
Now it’s obvious that all the promises Buhari and his APC cliq made was just political promises. So my dear country men/women better don’t expect much from him.
