I think it’s a good step by President Buhari to reverse that opinion. When such monies are approved for individuals, they usually don’t get to them.

For me, it would have amounted to a wrong option for a good cause. He can invest this money on a meaningful project that will create employment for youths so they can offer their services, not paying them stipends.

The Ajaokuta steel company for instance can accommodate over 5,000 engineers.

Rather than giving cash, why not invest the money there and create employment for youths? President Buahri could not have been everywhere to monitor the payment of the stipend.
