Unemployed Nigerians can be calm now as the All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured Nigerians that it will not renege on its campaign promise to pay N5,000 each to 25 million vulnerable Nigerians.
The assurance is contained in a statement the Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, issued in Abuja today.
“The Muhammadu Buhari administration has been busy putting in place measures that will make it possible to start the implementation of this project.
“Such measures include the introduction of the Treasury Single Account (TSA)
“We are happy to inform Nigerians that as at the end of September, 2015, over N1.4 trillion which hitherto was lying unproductive in various commercial banks has been recovered,” it said, adding that the money had been lodged in the TSA.
“The Buhari administration is poised to lift millions of Nigerians out of extreme poverty by providing social protection and safety nets,” the party said.
