Alleged Plans by Presidency to "Settle Predecessors" with "Hush Money"
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has accused the Nigerian Presidency of trying to "settle predecessors" by offering them "hush money." The coalition also claims that the recently announced palliative policy by the federal government is designed to serve the same purpose as the previous administration's Tradermoni policy.

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has alleged plans by the Presidency to "settle predecessors" among the arms of government with "hush money to buy the conscience of some powerful Nigerians."

The Coalition, which represents various political parties in Nigeria, claims that the federal government's recently announced palliative policy is similar to the previous administration's Tradermoni policy and is designed to serve the same purpose - sharing monies among cronies and making phony cash payments to themselves using vulnerable citizens as a cover.

The National Secretary of CUPP, High Chief Peter Ameh, expressed regret over the N70b earmarked in the 2023 budget to allocate an allowance of about N150 million to each of the 469 National Assembly members. He described it as part of the government's plot to exploit and "sleeze" the masses.

In a statement released by the coalition, High Chief Peter Ameh said, "The circus of stealth, sleaze, and stealing is continuing unabated. It is, however, refreshing that the masses seem to have seen through this charade."

The CUPP accuses the government of attempting to disburse "hush money" among the arms of government to purchase the conscience of powerful individuals. They also claim that the government plans to settle their predecessors with cash payments.

Highlighting the proposed allowances for the National Assembly members and severance packages for the President, Vice President, and their aides, Ameh commented, "What disrespect is this? Which father in today's Nigeria will give his child N50 for food or what!"

The coalition suggests that instead of distributing cash grants to vulnerable households, the funds could be utilized to invest in robust national transportation infrastructure. They propose acquiring brand new high-capacity buses that would aid commuters and reduce transport fares, creating jobs in the process.

Ameh concludes by emphasizing the need for true statesmen to lead the country, putting the people's interests first and genuinely working towards reducing the cost of governance, increasing access to basic services, and improving the lives of the poorest individuals in society.

The CUPP argues that the government has failed to fulfill its campaign promises, pointing out the increase in Unity Schools' fees and the defunding of education as examples of contrary actions.

As the allegations and counter-allegations continue, it is essential for the citizens of Nigeria to remain vigilant and hold their leaders accountable for their actions and policies.
