Nigerian internet users have taken to Twitter to attack the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, after she announced on her Twitter page that the Ministry will be empowering some women with N20, 000 grant each, equivalent to $52.

“I was in Jos, Plateau State on Thursday to flag off the Federal Government Special Grant project for rural women which will see over 700,000 women receive grants of N20,000 to make them financially empowered members of the society.” Farouq said


Nigerians on Twitter have slammed her over the announcement. According to them, no one in Nigeria can survive on N20, 000 let alone be empowered. See reactions below
