Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has shed more light on the proposed N5,000 monthly transportation grant the federal government plans to give poor Nigerians after the removal of fuel subsidy by June next year.According to the minister, the allowance would last for a duration of 12 months.

But the Senate faulted the move by the government, saying the 2022 appropriation bill under consideration by the legislature does not make provision for the N5, 000 monthly transportation stipend for 40 million Nigerians being contemplated by the federal government next year.
