Senate calls for immediate probe of Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme

Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to begin immediate probe of his predecessor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, in the handling of the Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme, SURE-P.

The red chamber said it was imperative that President Buhari ask his predecessor to account for every amount that spent during the latter‘s administration on the SURE-P and other poverty alleviation programmes.

This came just as it ruled against the implementation of the N5, 000 monthly stipends to unemployed Nigerian youths as the President promised during his campaign.

The advice to probe Jonathan is sequel to an additional prayer moved by Senator Babajide Christopher Omoworare to Senator Bassey Albert Akpan-sponsored motion, entitled: “Urgent need to curb the soaring rate of unemployment in Nigeria,” which he presented for consideration during plenary.
