Tinubu approves N50,000 for 3.6m families in Nigeria


President Bola Tinubu has given his approval for an uplift grant for 3.6 million families in Nigeria.

The grant will be disbursed under the National Construction and Household Support Programme.

This will see about 100,000 families in each state receive N50,000 for three months.

Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, confirmed this in a statement.

It read in part: “In addition, other items under the National Construction and Household Support Programme include:

“One-off allocation to states and the Federal Capital Territory of N10 billion for the procurement of buses and CNG uplift programme.

“Delivery of N50,000 uplift grants each to 100,000 families per state for three (3) months.

“Provision for labour unions and civil society organizations.

“Deployment of N155 billion for the purchase and sale of assorted foodstuffs to be distributed across the nation.”

During the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja, Tinubu urged state governors to work together to meet the needs of citizens.

Tinubu also promised that “he is willing to provide the needed support to ensure that Nigerians are relieved of hardship.”
