Payment of N5,000 To Unemployed Graduates Is Not A Priority

President Buhari, who was away in Saudi Arabia during an interactive session with Nigerians in that country reportedly claimed that the payment of the N5,000 handouts as promised by his party during the campaigns was not his priority.

Mixed reactions ranging from the need to face reality as, APC's promise of paying out N5,000 stipends to some unemployed Nigerians. While some as Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and Tanko Almakura of Nasarawa State saw the reversal as a consequence of economic realities of the time, some leading lights in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as erstwhile deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Sir Austin Opara saw it as another betrayal by the APC.
