The federal government announced that it has started disbursing the N5000 stipend which was promised to poor Nigerians by President Buhari.
The Tribune reports that, the presidency announced that the government has begun the payment.
Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and publicity to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo disclosed that the implementation of the programme was part of the Muhammadu Buhari administration’s determined efforts to touch the lives of Nigerians positively.
The Punch however reports that that Governor Fayose challenged the president to make public names of those who have received as Ekiti people have not received anything yet.
Fayose claimed only All Progressives Congress (APC) states will agree that they have received payment.
“A blind man will say it is when it gets into my mouth that I will say you are feeding me, not promises.”
He said the ruling party “should come to the reality that Nigerians are hungry and also angry and that Nigerians are no longer interested in empty promises.”
Fayose accused the APC of focusing on 2019 rather than making the country better and said the project was a World Bank own with payment made since 2016.
The governor said he was already paying poor people N10000 in Ekiti without delay.
“Federal government’s N5,000 payment to the poor was designed in a way that the state governors are also involved because they are to clear and present prospective beneficiaries before payments are made.”
