Sahara reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, who’s hoping to be president in 2019, has continued his campaign promises ahead of the elections and this time he says, ‘If You’re A Youth Corps Member (“Corper”) And You Agree To Serve Anywhere In Nigeria You’re Posted Your Take Home Allowance Will Be N50,000 starting From May 29, 2019, When I Become The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria’.
He added that, ‘It Will Be A New Day For The SHORTCHANGED Youths Of Nigeria. If Former Oil Minister Diezani And Her Cohorts Could Steal Over $2 billion For Themselves, Youth Corp Members Deserve Decent Renuemeration. Corpers Serving In Volatile States (Borno, Bayelsa, Rivers, Yobe, Zamfara, Benue, Plateau) Will Get Life Insurance Worth N10million In Case Anything Untowards Happen To Them. You All Are On Our Mind’.
Sowore also said, ‘do You Know That Over 30,000 Niger Delta militants in the Federal “Amnesty Programme” Receive N135,00 per month? They get N65,000 as “Bush Allowance” and N70,000 as “Feeding Allowance”. This is separate from school fees in private schools and foreign universities, air tickets in addition to looting. The costs are ginormous to the extent that President Buhari had to fire PAUL Boroh a few days ago. Nigeria Can Certainly Afford N50,000 as starting “allawee” for its corp members. They deserve decent bush and feeding allowances too!’.
