As part of President Bola Tinubu’s N819 billion palliative to lessen the impact of fuel subsidies on Nigerians, the House of Representatives will get an allocation of N70 billion.

According to the President’s letter, which was delivered by the Speaker, Rep. Tajudeen Abbas, on July 12, the sum was intended to help the working circumstances of new members.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Rep. Julius Ihonvere, the majority leader of the House, had submitted a bill from the N819 billion 2022 Supplementary Appropriation for second reading.

The supply of palliatives to Nigerians was intended, according to the Majority Leader, to lessen the impact of the elimination of fuel subsidies.

Rep. Benjamin Kalu, the deputy speaker of the House, has praised President Tinubu’s choice and noted that the palliative would address the legislative issues.

The President’s willingness to listen was praised by Kalu, who also praised the President’s audacity and bravery.

There comes a time in a nation’s history when brave and courageous leaders are required, and it would seem that Nigeria has received one in the form of Tinubu.

He added that “there comes a time in the life of a nation where a leader that is sensitive to the welfare of the people is needed,” saying that it took courage and boldness for the President to eliminate subsidy.

We seem to have found such a leader. This leader has an open mind. The executive is in response to the people’s want, and this money won’t be given away for free.

According to NAN, he said that the funds would also be used to address the problems facing the National Assembly’s House of Representatives.
