Palliatives will continue until hardship is addressed, says information minister

Mohammed Idris, the minister of information, says the federal government will continue the disbursement of palliatives across the country until the hardship caused by the removal of petrol subsidy is addressed.

The minister who spoke at a reception organised by the Niger state government, on Saturday, assured Nigerians that the federal government will continue to develop policies that promote national values and orientation among the citizens.

He noted that state governments should support the federal government in the project of reorienting Nigerians.

The minister also said the President Bola Tinubu administration is conscious of the people’s needs, and its agenda has been designed to address the leading socio-economic challenges and create jobs for the youth.


On August 23, the minister had said the new administration will not rely on propaganda to propagate government programmes and policies.

He said the administration will strive to restore people’s confidence and trust in the government by implementing tangible and credible policies.

Speaking at the event, Mohammed Bago, governor of Niger State, congratulated those who secured political positions at both the federal and state levels and urged them to be good ambassadors of the state.


He commended the federal government on the plans to ameliorate the suffering of the citizens, promising that the state governors would play their part in ensuring that the palliatives reach those for whom they were intended.

Bago noted that Niger state provides opportunities for agriculture with its mass arable land, saying it can play a huge role in the federal government’s desire to create more prosperity for Nigerians.
