Payment of N5,000 to unemployed youth will begin in 2016 - Minister

Solomon Dalong

Solomon Dalong, the Minister of Youth and Sports while paying a condolence visit to the national chairman of the APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, over the death of Abubakar Audu on Wednesday said that the promise made earlier by the Buhari led government to pay N5,000 to unemployed youths was not provided for in the 2015 budget but assured that it will definitely start in 2016.

Mr. Dalong who spoke to ​ journalists​ during the visit​ said:
“I would want the youth to understand that every promise must be backed up by budgetary provision and our promise to pay N5000 is not contained in the 2015 budget. So, definitely, it is going to begin in 2016 as we have made budgetary allocations for that.
“We are committed to the campaign promises of creating jobs, providing wealth and combat poverty. We have embedded in our manifesto things that we are translating to reality​.”​
