The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, General
Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has promised to provide allowances to
discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members for Twelve (12) months
while in the skills and entrepreneurial development programmes, if
elected in 2015. There is also the pledge to provide One Meal a day for
all Primary school pupils.
Buhari/Osibanjo administration also vow to create a Social Welfare
Program of at least Five Thousand Naira (N5000) that will cater for the
25 million poorest and most vulnerable citizens upon the demonstration
of children’s enrolment in school and evidence of immunisation to help
promote family stability.
“As a nation and the Sub Saharan Africa’s leading energy producer,
we had in the past squandered the opportunity to build functional
infrastructure to better the lives of the average Nigerian. We can no
longer afford this luxury of inactivity. We must revive our public and
private sectors in order to provide functional services and secure the
good of the individual Nigerian and his or her family,” Buhari said in a
document that reveals some of his plans for 2015.
