Nigerians continue to lament on the measures taken by the federal government to distribute palliative due to subsidy removal. As audience who shared their thoughts on Nas FM current affairs programme “Morning Grill” insist that the measures do not favour the reality of the situation.
This is coming on the backdrop of the 35,000 wage award to civil servants announced by Nigerian government.
According to a caller,Anty Hajara from Bachure government should consider non civil servants. More so,retired civil servants,pensioners who sacrificed for building the country.
Anty Hajara who is a retired civil servant,on the sick bed complained that majority of the citizens who are affected by the situation should be optimally considered not those who can afford meals for days.
Other callers,Hon. Kawule of Shinko and Alh Musa Logo agreed on channelling help to people in dire need of assistant.
Hon. Kawule was also optimistic flooding to communities along River Benue can be address by dredging the river,noting that the work cost less than government is spending on Emergency interventions.
