“The President has directed that the N8,000 conditional cash transfer programmed envisaged to bring succour to most vulnerable households be reviewed immediately,” Alake said the new directive is “deference to the views expressed by Nigerians against it.”

“A lot of ill-informed imputations have been read into the programme by not a few naysayers. The Administration believes in the maxim that when there is prohibition, there must be provision. Since subsidy, the hydra-headed monster threatening to kill the economy has been stopped, the government has employed a broad spectrum of reliefs to bring help to Nigerians.”

Tinubu directed that the whole gamut of the palliative package of government be unveiled to Nigerians.
