Senate President Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan intervened on Thursday, July 16, 2020, on behalf of the Nigerian government, in a peaceful protest organized by Npowerbeneficiaries against news of N power's withdrawal from Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farooq, the minister responsible for N power, without an “improvement program” previously promised “
Beneficiaries who started a peaceful protest from Eagle's Square to the Abuja National Assembly brought several signs with different inscriptions:
“We cannot return to the streets to start over” “We have families with a monthly salary of N30,000 are dependent; survive now? “, Nigerian graduates are Nigeria's future. Treat them better, “ If you have been able to pay Bokoharam, N65,000 militants continuously monthly since 2012, why can you pay Nigerian lawful N30,000 monthly?",” You promised us an improvement plan before the 2019 elections because you want to do the opposite, “Don't force us to riot, “ Give us permanent work", “Nigeria has more than enough money to pay us” among other things, too many signs to catch it.
In response to the demonstrators, Senate President Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan asked them to come back on Thursday, July 23, 2020, to negotiate the tables.
Senate President Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan praised the demonstrators for adhering to the rules of “social distance” despite their anger by pointing out that the necessary measures had been taken to prevent them from being put on the streets again.
Earlier, the spokesman for the Mallam Muhammed A demonstrators thanked Senate Chairman Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan for his attention, adding that while it is not a speech day, all they want is permanent work, as promised by the federal government from the start.
He stressed that the government's plan to dismantle it without an “improvement program” was a call for social evils such as theft, kidnapping and, of course, a high unemployment rate.
Mohammed told the President of the Senate that the excuse flying around that the A and B Npower beneficiaries must be decoupled in order for batch C to arrive is a conspiracy by the Buhari government's enemies to shorten its most revered “legacy”,We have to be aware of the fact that the Commission's proposal, which is a very important step forward, has come about with the support of the Federal Council and the Federal Council in the form of a comprehensive program for the future.
Hope the federal government come into agreement with all the Npower beneficiaries
