House Of Reps Approves Tinubu’s Request For N500billion on Palliatives

The House of Representatives on Thursday approved the request of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for an amendment to the 2022 appropriation act to allow the Federal Government take N500 billion for palliatives to Nigerians to cushion the pains of subsidy removal.

The House at the Committee of supply approved the President’s request after contributions by members of the House who called for proper utilisation of the funds for the purpose it was meant for.

Members took turns to commend the President for taking a bold step to remove fuel subsidy and showing to Nigerians that he was a listening President.

House Leader, Julius Ihonvbare who presented the request to members for debate said the country has a President who listens to the yearning of the people.

Minority Leader Kingsley Chinda however said the proper yardstick to measure a government is whether it is responsible and responsive.
