The All Progressives Congress (APC), presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has promised to provide one meal a day for all primary school pupils and provide allowances to discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members for twelve (12) months while in the skills and entrepreneurial development programmes, if elected in 2015.
The Buhari/Osibanjo campaign organisation also vowed to create a Social Welfare Programme of at least five thousand Naira (N5,000) that will cater for the 25 million poorest and most vulnerable citizens upon the demonstration of children’s enrolment in school and evidence of immunisation to help promote family stability.
“As a nation and the sub-Saharan Africa’s leading energy producer, we had in the past squandered the opportunity to build functional infrastructure to better the lives of the average Nigerian.
“We can no longer afford this luxury of inactivity. We must revive our public and private sectors in order to provide functional services and secure the good of the individual Nigerian and his or her family,” Buhari said, in a document that reveals some of his plans for 2015.
