FG’s N5,000 Stipend: Blame APC For Marginalising Ndigbo, Says Sen. Abaribe

FG's N5,000 Stipend: Blame APC for marginalising Ndigbo - Sen Abaribe

The Chairman, South-East Senators Caucus, Senator Ennyinnaya Abaribe, has noted with con­cern the seemingly outright neglect of the Igbo nation in the distribution of N5,000 to the poorest of the poor by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Recently, the federal gov­ernment rolled out names of nine states of the federation as the first batch of benefi­ciaries of the N5,000 social intervention fund. No state in the South East geopo­litical zone was included among the recipient states mentioned.
Reacting on the develop­ment, Abaribe lamented that it was wrong for the op­erators of the programme to have willfully or unwillingly excluded the entire five states of the South East in the first batch of the distribution.
He wondered why the ruling APC government should make a policy that excludes ethic group such as the South East in the shar­ing formula of national cake as though there are no poor people in the zone.
He said: “I think this is not a question for me who belongs to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), rather the ruling All Progres­sive Congress (APC) should be in the position to answer that question whether they can make a policy which ex­cludes the South East.     (The Authority)
