President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha has urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians.

Mrs Buhari specifically called on the APC to ensure that it pays N5,000 to 25 million unemployed Nigerians as it promised.

The remarks were contained in a statement released on Tuesday, November 10, 2015, by Mrs Buahri’s media aide, Adebisi Olumide Ajayi.

It reads:

“The wife of the President, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari, has appealed to the ruling party All Progressives Congress, APC not to renege on their campaign promise of paying N5,000 to 25 million unemployed Nigerians and giving school children one free meal a day.”

“This comes after the senators from the party voted against the senate moving a motion calling on the Presidency to pay the N5,000 allowance.”

“The wife of the president asked Nigerians to be patient with the APC government as the change they had been yearning for had come to stay.”

The APC had come under criticism after Senator-members of the party contested a motion to implement the above mentioned payments.

The ruling party however said that it had every intention of fulfilling the promise.
