Unemployed Youths Expecting N5,000 Stipend Will Go to the Farm – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday declared that unemployed Nigerians seeking to collect the N5,000 monthly stipend promised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the 2015 presidential election may be sent to farms to earn the money.

Speaking during his first presidential media chat, President Buhari said: “When my VP is quoted, how can I come here and disown it?

“We may have to send the young unemployed youth seeking N5,000 fee to farm to earn the money.”

The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, had appealed to the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to renege on its campaign promise of paying N5,000 to 25 million unemployed Nigerians and to provide school children one free meal per day.

One of the major election campaign promises of President Buhari’s APC was that all unemployed Nigerian youths would be paid N5,000 until they get employment. But in a radical shift, the senators from the All Progressives Congress rejected the motion.

Reacting to the development, Nigerians from all around the country took to social media to express their anger and disappointment.
