Daniel Bwala, an aide to Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration’s N5 billion palliative as disgraceful.
Bwala disclosed on X, formerly his Twitter handle while reacting to the approval of the disbursement of N5 billion each to the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.
“The organized labour has demystified the so-called N5 billion FGN gave to States; first, the FGN said it was palliative and is now saying it is a loan.
“Organized labour further did their arithmetical calculations and arrived at a shameful conclusion that the so-called 5billion naira comes down to N1,500 per person.
“How much is the cost of food items in the market? Renewed nonsense”, he wrote.
