Pray Before You Collect Tinubu’s N8,000 Palliative – Shehu Sani Warns Proposed Recipients

Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to President Bola Tinubu’s plan to pay N8,000 palliatives to 12 million Nigerians

In a letter read in the House of Representatives during plenary on Thursday, the Federal Government had announced that 12 million households will get N8,000 for six months to ameliorate the hardships faced by Nigerians as a result of subsidy removal.

Tinubu said the initiative was designed to enable indigent and vulnerable Nigerian people to cope with the cost of meeting basic needs.

The President explained that it would have a multiplier effect on about 60 million individuals.

He stated that to ascertain the credibility of the process, digital transfers would be made directly to beneficiaries accounts.

The President said, “Under the conditional cash transfer window of the programme, the Federal Government of Nigeria will transfer the sum of N8,000 a month to 12 million poor and low-income households for a period of six months with a multiplying effect on about 60 million beneficiaries”

Reacting to the development via a post on Twitter, Sani warned the proposed recipients of the N8,000 to pray before receiving it, as the 10,000 introduced by the previous administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari plunged people into deeper poverty.

According to him, “People who collected Buhari’s ‘jazzed’ 10k ended up in deeper poverty.Pray before you collect the next 8k.”
