Former Nigeria vice president Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday asked the Federal Government to give every Nigerian family in the country N10,000 to make them stay at home.

“At an approximate 30 million households or thereabouts, the government should devise modalities to distribute N10,000 as a supplement for foodstuff to each household, among other palliative measures, with no one left behind,” Atiku said in a Medium post.

“It is thus time for the National Assembly to reconvene in an emergency session, perhaps by teleconference (in line with the demands of social distancing), to legislate a Stimulus Package Act that will cater for all Nigerian citizens.”
