In response to President Bola Tinubu’s idea to provide N8,000 cash palliatives to 12 million Nigerians in six months, human rights campaigner Omoyele Sowore has slammed the administration.
In an effort to mitigate the effects of the loss of fuel subsidies, the President wrote to the National Assembly on Thursday asking for permission to implement the new development.
While the planned programme has been greeted with a backlash among Nigerians, Sowore described Tinubu’s administration as a government of “renewed shege”.
He made the remark on his Twitter page while reacting to Tinubu’s decision to provide palliative care to Nigerians for six months.
“The #RenewedShege government! So, for six months, @officialABAT will offer a palliative of N53 each day? The jokes went too far! Nigerians are not valued by these guys! Sowore tweeted, “#Revolutionnow.
The activist calculated that Tinubu’s intentions to provide N8,000 to the nation’s 12 million underprivileged households would instead amount to N53 each day for six months.
