Cleric Kicks Against N8,000 Palliatives, Proposes N100,000 Minimum


LAGOS JULY 14TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has kicked against the proposed N8,000 palliatives to 12 Million households to cushion the effect of subsidy removal.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele noted that the N8,000 palliatives will only lead to corruption and will not reach out to the poor masses that need it.

He mentioned that the palliatives will not have any serious impact on the people because of corruption among politicians.

“The N8,000 palliative is corruption, I see nothing in the palliative and it will not reach out to the poor masses. Despite the fact that Mr President has signed it, it will not make any impact. The governors will use it for their selfish needs. The poor will not enjoy it at all.

“It will not be a blessing to the majority, the palliative is just a waste of time and energy, it cannot work for its purpose,” Primate Ayodele posited.

On the alternative, the cleric advised that minimum wage should be increased to N100,000 if indeed the government has the people at heart.

Primate Ayodele asserted that an increase in minimum wage will have a direct impact on the people.

“If truly the government is concerned about the masses, the minimum wage should be increased to N100,000. It will go a long way in cushioning the effects of subsidy removal and inflation. Minimum wage increase will have a direct impact on the people than N8,000 palliatives.”
