Yesterday the Senate rejected a motion for the payment of N5, 000 monthly allowance to unemployed youths in the country.
When the motion was raised by Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), it was greeted with vehement nos from the floor. Things got rowdy and even a move to second the motion was drowned by protests.
While Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members yelled ‘’aye’’ in favour of the motion, All Progressives Congress (APC) senators, who were in majority, rejected it.
Well, this has infuriated the youths who feel they were hoodwinked by the campaign promises of President Buhari. The majority feel he should fulfill his promises, a tiny few have other opinions.
It is now trending on twitter.
