APC Commends FG Over N5000 Payment To Vulnerable Nigerians

The All Progressives Congress (APC) commends the President Muhammadu

Buhari administration for fulfilling the promise the Party made to

Nigerians during the 2015 general election campaigns that safety nets

will be provided to vulnerable Nigerians.
The Party notes that with the commencement of payment of N5000 to one

million poor Nigerians through the Conditional Cash Transfer scheme of

the Government, the Buhari administration has demonstrated its

commitment to the Party’s Change manifestoes which is couched on true

We recall that as part of its Social Investment Programme (SIP), the

Government has begun implementing three other major campaign promises

of the Party designed to provide jobs and lift the most vulnerable

Nigerians out of poverty. These include: the N-Power Volunteer Corps

which will provide jobs to 500,000 young Nigerian graduates; the

National Homegrown Feeding Programme which has commenced in selected

states, and the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme

(GEEP), which provides soft loans ranging from N10,000 to 100,000 to

artisans, traders, market women, among others.
The APC views these achievements as historic and unprecedented in the

history of Nigeria even as it assures Nigerians that the Government is

committed and working hard to make significant progress on the

economy, and other sectoral areas.
The Party acknowledges that the past year was a tough one for

Nigerians occasioned by the economic recession but have confidence in

the ability of President Buhari to design programmes and policies that

will provide succor to the masses.
We urge Nigerians to continue to support and pray for the President

Buhari-led administration so that our dream of a more prosperous,

secure and stable nation will be achieved.
