Buhari’s N5,000 campaign promise nearly came to life today… at the Senate

During the presidential election campaign, President Muhammadu Buhari, pledged to pay a N5,000 monthly stipend to unemployed youths in the country.

On Wednesday, at the Senate, the nation was reminded of the pledge, as the President was urged to make good on his word.

A Peoples Democratic Party Senator, Philip Aduda, moved a motion for the payment of the N5, 000 stipend.

But the majority senators of the All Progressives Congress drowned his motion with vehement resistance and shouts of ‘no no’.

Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, would attempt to second the motion, but his effort led to a rowdy session in the upper chamber.

Senators of the APC and the PDP engaged in heated arguments over the N5,000 payment, until Senate President, Bukola Saraki, intervened.

For now, the motion appears dead in the water.
