Mr Kenneth Okonkwo of the Labour Party, LP, has described the Federal Government’s plan to pay poor Nigerian households N8,000 monthly “as an insult to common sense and means to steal government fund in the name of poor Nigerians”.


In a post via his Twitter handle on Monday, Okonkwo also alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, government is arresting and detaining Nigerians without trial, saying it is anti-people.


Recall that the Federal Government had announced a plan to pay N8,000 monthly to 12 million poor Nigerians as palliatives to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy removal.

However, the veteran Nollywood actor claimed that the amount would not be sufficient for poor Nigerians who could barely afford a plate of food.
