Unemployed youths in the country have a cause to smile after the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government confirmed that the payment of the N5000 stipend to unemployed Nigerians will commence next year.
The FG said it regretted that the payment could not take off now due to non budgetary provisions, Vanguard reports.
Minister of Youth and Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalong revealed this yesterday in Abuja when he paid a condolence visit to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun at the national secretariat in Abuja on the demise of Prince Abubakar Audu, the erstwhile governorship candidate of the party in Kogi State election.
Speaking with newsmen, Dalong assured that the APC government would also create more jobs to fulfill its campaign promises.
