This initiative will deliver N50,000 to 100,000 families in each state.

The disbursement of the Tinubu uplift grant to families will occur over three months, according to presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale.

Reacting to the development, Sani said the beneficiaries should at least be 25 million people.

He wrote on his verified X (formerly Twitter) handle on Friday night, June 28:

“50k for 1 million people is not enough. The beneficiaries should at least be 25 million people. The first priority should be people with disabilities, Women and youths. To urgently prevent the Kenyanisation of our country.”

Grants needed to mitigate hardship

Legit.ng reports that since taking office in May 2023, President Tinubu has embarked on some reforms, including removing petrol and electricity subsidies.

The reforms have complicated sustenance for the ordinary citizens as Nigerians now spend 50% more on transportation than they did before Tinubu’s reign. Increased costs have also driven up the cost of agricultural production and food distribution.
