FG Will No Longer Give 25m Poorest Nigerians N5,000 Monthly As Promised – Osinbajo

Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at a town hall meeting put together by the United Action for Change (UAC), yesterday, noted that Nigerians are going through very difficult times, including, electricity problem, scarcity of petrol, inflation among other challenges.

“You can be sure this is not going to be the end of the story, but that of abundance,” Osinbajo assured Nigerians.

The vice president implored Nigerians never to lose hope of the change mantra, remarking that Nigerians should be rest assured that there is a determination to change the direction of the country positively, as he and President Muhammadu Buhari are committed to solving the country’s problems.

Osinbajo maintained that the question of the country experiencing change is irrevocable, since according to him, the change they canvassed for is not a slogan, as Nigeria cannot survive going the direction it was before now.

“Today, we have a leader who is honest, which is the most important thing,” Osinbajo said, adding that Nigeria has the best opportunity now.

Osinbajo also said that the campaign promise to give N5,000 to 25 million poorest of the poor can no longer be fulfilled with the present state of the economy, but said a million Nigerians would be given N5,000 monthly.
