The Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has reminded President Muhammadu Buhari of his campaign promises to Nigerians.
“The ruling APC government must fulfill their campaign promise of paying unemployed Nigerians a sum of 5000 Naira monthly,” he said on the floor of the Senate Chambers during moves to consider the third motion for the day: Urgent Need to curb the soaring rate of Unemployment in Nigeria.
According to Ekweramadu, “construction industries in Nigeria are no longer working and this is an impending revolution in our hands.”
Senator Urhoghide (Edo South), in his reaction, says employment in Nigeria is a national problem and must be tackled as such. He, therefore, urged the federal government to lift the ban on employment in its agencies and parastatals.
