N5000 allowance: 'President, APC have failed us' - Nigerian youths

The Senate had at its Wednesday plenary session shouted down the motion, which was sponsored Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), even before he explained it.

 

In reaction to the rejected motion for the payment of N5, 000 monthly allowances to unemployed youths, Nigerians have taken to social media to demand the implementation of the stipend.

The Senate had at its Wednesday plenary session shouted down the motion, which was sponsored Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), even before he explained it.

The noise of "no no" rented the air when Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, attempted to second the motion, leading to a rowdy session.

Nigerian youths are however protesting this rejection on Twitter, with many berating the Buhari administration for failing on its promises.

The topic is currently the number one trending on Nigeria Twitter.
