But I heard that they decided to give an allowance of N 5,000 to the people. They have to come to a round table with the people to discuss better things to spend the money on that will benefit the people. all.

“If they just unilaterally decide that the money will be shared among people, it will only increase their suffering. What can N5,000 buy in our market today?

“There must be a dialogue or agreement on its use for the construction of railways connecting all the states of the federation. In this way, farmers, business owners and others would benefit and jobs would be created for young people. It could also be used for security, road construction and electricity.

“It must be tied to a particular project and backed by law, so that it will be used for the purposes for which it was intended.”

“I am a Yoruba; my belief is that everything will be fine with Yoruba, Hausa, Ibo, other ethnic groups and Nigeria in general because God has blessed this country with human and natural resources, but we are lagging behind because we have a visionary leader as we had at the birth of our nation. This is why we are not satisfied, ”he said.
