Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, has warned Nigerians over the N8,000 palliative from President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
Sani said Nigerians should pray before collecting the N8,000 from Tinubu’s administration.
He claimed that those who collected the “jazzed” N10,000 under former President Muhammadu Buhari ended up in poverty.
Tweeting, Sani wrote: “People who collected Buhari’s ‘jazzed’ 10k ended up in deeper poverty. Pray before you collect the next 8k.”
Tinubu had unveiled plans to transfer N8,000 to 12 million poor households in the country.
He said the money would be transferred to poor Nigerians within the next six months.
The president’s plan was contained in a letter to the House of Representatives over the $800 million loan request of Buhari’s administration for the social safety net programme.
He urged the House of Representatives to secure the loan.
