BREAKING: Reps vow to effectively monitor palliative implementation

The House of Representatives has promised to effectively oversee the implementation of palliative programmes to ensure maximum benefits for Nigerians.

Spokesman for the House, Akin Rotimi, made the vow in a statement on Tuesday, August 1, following the nationwide broadcast by President Bola Tinubu.

The House commended the president for announcing palliatives aimed at alleviating the adverse economic effects of the fuel subsidy removal.

The statement further empathised with Nigerians whom it stated had been distressed due to the gap between the removal of the subsidy and the implementation of palliative measures to cushion its effects.

It expressed optimism that the policies and initiatives announced by the President would be expedited to bring succour to the people.

The statement reads in part:

“I assure all Nigerians that the house will be alive to the constitutional obligation to effectively monitor all entities of government responsible for the deployment of the palliative measures.

“On our part in the House of Representatives, we will closely monitor every agency of government that will be involved in the implementation, to ensure speedy delivery, equitable distribution, and transparency.”
