The House of Representatives has pledged to effectively oversee the implementation of palliative programmes to ensure maximum benefits to Nigerians.
The spokesman for the House, Rep. Akin Rotimi, made the pledge in a statement on Tuesday following the nationwide broadcast by President Bola Tinubu.
According to the statement, the house commended Tinubu for announcing palliatives aimed at alleviating the adverse economic effects resulting from the removal of fuel subsidy.
The statement 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.
It expressed optimism that the policies and initiatives announced by the President would be expedited to bring succor to the people.
