Politics Senate Urges Buhari To Probe Every Kobo Spent On SURE-P

#1
Senators yesterday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate all expenditures made by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration under the Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P).

The lawmakers specifically urged the President to ensure that every kobo spent on SURE-P and other poverty alleviation programmes is accounted for.

The Senate, however, rejected a proposal that Buhari should immediately begin the payment of N5,000 monthly stipend to most vulnerable Nigerians - one of the campaign promises of the ruling All Progresives Congress (APC).

The SURE-P probe resolution followed an additional prayer by Senator Babajide Omoworare (APC Osun East) on a motion for “Urgent need to curb the soaring rate of unemployment in Nigeria.”

Senator Bassey Albert Akpan (Akwa Ibom North East) sponsored the motion.
