I would rather invest than give unemployed Nigerians N5k/month-Buhari

While speaking during a meeting in Saudi Arabia, President
Buhari said he had a different opinion on the N5000 stipend
his party promised to give to unemployed Nigerians when they
come into power.                                        

Buhari said he would rather use the N5000 to repair the
infrastructures in schools and empower mining and
agriculture than to give the money to people who don’t work;
“This largesse of N5,000 for the unemployed, I have got
a slightly different priority. I would rather do the
infrastructure for the school that request them and
empower agriculture, mining so that every able bodied
person can go and get work instead of giving 5,000,
N5,000 to those who don’t work.”
