SIGNAL on Thursday conducted a Twitter poll to determine the opinions of young Nigerians over a decision by senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to reject a motion for the implementation of a N5,000 stipend for unemployed Nigerian graduates.

One of the major campaign promises of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the presidential elections was that it would pay a token N5,000 for all unemployed Nigerian youths until they get employment, but in a radical shift on Wednesday, APC senators rejected a motion to bring the dream into fruition.
