No going back on N5,000 allowance to jobless youths – APC

 























The All Progressives Congress has assured Nigerians that it will
not renege on its campaign promise to
pay 5,000 Naira each monthly to 25 million most vulnerable Nigerians, while calling on the citizens to ignore the mischievous attempt by the PDP to confuse and mislead them on this issue.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said even though the PDP-led Federal Government plundered the common wealth in its time, it (APC) has devised creative means not only to pay the money but also to fulfill its other campaign
promises to Nigerians.

It said the non-implementation of the payment policy so far is due to the fact that it was not included in the 2015
budget, which was prepared by the PDP-led Jonathan Administration, and also because of the need to first block
all financial leakages.

”Now, the Buhari administration has been busy putting into 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 of the end of September 2015, over 1.4 trillion Naira – which hitherto was
lying unproductively in various commercial banks – has been recovered
and paid into the TSA,” APC said.

The party said that in its usual jumpy and superficial approach to issues, the PDP has already rushed to judgement on the issue without bothering to hear from the APC, which made the promise in the first instance.
