that it has no plan to pay N5000 to all Unemployed Nigerians, saying such payment will be made as
allowances only to those undergoing different skill acquisition programmes.
Chris Ngige stated this while speaking with newsmen at the APC
“We also have the programme on the
commission cash transfer. Though even you the press has said it, we
won’t pay N5000 for people to be indolent. No country in the world,
would pay people to go home and sleep and collect cash, so Nigerian
would not be an exception.
“We will pay some people N5000, we will
pay some N10,000, and even for people in teacher conversion scheme, we
will pay more than N10,000, N15,000 as stipend while in training, and
then after the training, they are going to be employed by state
government and the federal government in different institution.
“It is not a programme we shall run
alone, the state governments are going to buy into it, they are going to
synchronize with us, we are going to do it in synergy”
