In a recent development, President Bola Tinubu has announced a revision of the initial plan to distribute monthly cash grants of N8,000 to 12 million households for a period of six months.

The decision comes in response to public criticism and concerns raised by organized labor, who believe that the proposed intervention falls short of adequately alleviating the hardships caused by the removal of fuel subsidies.

Late on Tuesday, a statement issued by Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications, and Strategy, conveyed the President’s directive to review the N8,000 conditional cash transfer program aimed at providing relief to the most vulnerable households.

Tinubu has instructed that the entire range of government palliative measures be promptly disclosed to the Nigerian public.

Furthermore, Tinubu has ordered the immediate distribution of fertilizers and grains to approximately 50 million farmers and households across all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

This move aims to address the pressing needs of agricultural communities and ensure food security.

The President’s decision to review the cash palliative and expand the scope of assistance reflects a commitment to better address the challenges faced by vulnerable Nigerians and ensure a more comprehensive approach to mitigating the effects of the fuel subsidy removal.
