The federal government has ​​​assured Nigerians that it would commence payment of N5,000 promised unemployed Nigerian youth during the electioneering campaign, from 2016.

The minister of youth and sports, Solomon Dalong, made the commitment on Wednesday when he paid a condolence visit on the national chairman of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun,

over the death of the party’s governorship candidate in the recently held inconclusive election in Kogi state, Abubakar Audu.


Mr. Dalong,who spoke to ​ journalists​ during the visit​,​ said the APC government ​wa​s fully committed
to fulfilling all campaign promises made before the last elections. PremiumTimes reports he said the​ payment of the promised N5​,​000 can only begin after it ha​d​ been included in the budget.

“I would want the youth to understand that every promise must be backed up by budgetary provision and our promise to pay N5000 is not contained in the 2015 budget. So, definitely, it is going to begin in 2016 as we have made budgetary allocations for that. We are committed to the campaign promises of creating jobs, providing wealth and combat poverty. We have embedded in our manifesto things that we are translating to reality​.”​
