BREAKING: Tinubu Orders Review Of N8,000 Palliative Package

Servicing Debt With 90% Revenue Could Spell Doom

President Bola Tinubu has ordered the immediate review of the proposed N8000, the conditional cash transfer to Nigerians, to cushion the effect of the petrol subsidy removal.

In a statement on Tuesday night, Dele Alake, special adviser on special duties, communications and strategy, said Tinubu has also directed that the whole gamut of the palliative package of government be unveiled to Nigerians.

“That the N8,000 conditional cash transfer programme envisaged to bring succour to most vulnerable households be reviewed immediately. This is in deference to the views expressed by Nigerians against it,” the statement reads.
