FG To Monitor Deployment Of Subsidy Palliatives- Presidency

The Presidency has announced that the Federal Government is prepared to oversee the distribution of palliatives at the state level, which are intended to mitigate the effects of subsidy removal for Nigerians. Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, shared this information during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today last Friday.

“It is fair to say that there does not need to be a check. There needs to be a means of monitoring which is why federal regulators are involved; which is why we have put in place the palliatives distribution,” he said.

The Federal Government has granted approval of N5 billion to each state, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to facilitate the purchase of food items for distribution among the less privileged within their respective regions. Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State revealed this information at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, following the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting on Thursday.

Following this development, the spokesperson for Tinubu acknowledged the potential for misconduct during the distribution process and stated that his principal intends to implement a grassroots-focused approach to address this concern.

“So, what we are doing now is this: yes, the state government is being empowered to the extent that they are implementing some of the palliatives that we are talking about with respect to the delivery of rice and maize to communities across the states and other supplements that are well known by now.

“But what we are also doing is that from the federal end, we are ensuring that these funds are not just giveaway grants that don’t have to be paid back. First of all, it’s a loan facility.”
