Subsidy Removal: No Provision For N5000 Transport Grant In 2022 Budget – Senate by ijustdey: 9:16pm On Nov 24
The Senate Committee on Finance has said there is no provision for monthly N5000 transport grant to 40 million poor Nigerians in the 2022...


The Senate Committee on Finance has said there is no provision for monthly N5000 transport grant to 40 million poor Nigerians in the 2022 budget currently being considered by the National Assembly.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, had said the federal government plans to remove fuel subsidy mid next year and the transport allowance was to cushion its potential negative impact on the most vulnerable Nigerians.

But the Senate committee said the 2022 budget proposal contains fuel subsidy, but no provision for the proposed N5000 transport grant, which amounts to N2.4 trillion annually.

The chairman of the committee, Senator Adeola Olamilekan Solomon, stated this while speaking with newsmen after presenting his panel’s report on 2022 budget to the Appropriations Committee.

He said before the executive could embark on such intervention, a proposal to that effect must be sent to the National Assembly for approval.

He also raised questions about the criteria to select the beneficiaries of the proposed transport subsidy.

Olamilekan said, “The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning was quoted to have said that 40 million Nigerians would be paid N5000 as transportation allowance in lieu of the fuel subsidy.

“I don’t want to go into details for now. I believe that if such proposal is to come to pass, a document to that effect must be sent to National Assembly for us to see how possible it is and how do we identify the 40 million Nigerians that are going to benefit.

“There are still a lot of issues to be deliberated upon and looked into if eventually this will come to pass. How do we raise this money to pay these 40 million Nigerians because I know that even the federal government revenues are from this so-called oil and other sources.

“We don’t have anywhere in the budget where 40 million Nigerians will collect N5000 monthly as transportation allowance totaling N2.4 trillion.

“I know that there must be a budgetary provison for this for us (National Assembly) to consider. That is why I said it is still a news out there until it is formally sent to the National Assembly for either a virement to the budget or reordering of the budget.

But there's provision for subsidy?

Once you take off the subsidy, you can channel the money to transport.

It will be more than enough for that.

The fuel subsidy removal is a Northern mission.
they want to use the subsidy money to service the $16 billion and €1 billion loan the president took to build railway in the North up to Niger republic...
we the southerners must come together as one and fight this with our last blood

Stop subsidy & begin N5,000 grant. Why are these people doing us like this? What's the difference between the grant & subsidy? Audio money that will still go back to them. An avenue to siphon cash.
