A presidential aide has dismissed reports that the federal government would be paying Nigerians N30,000 as relief fund to help them stock up food in their homes.
There were reports on Friday, attributed to the special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina , saying that the federal government would be giving stipends to Nigerians with bank verification number (BVN) to buy food items during the stay at home order by the government.
The man took to his Twitter handle and debunked the news as follows;
“Fake news peddlers have concocted a statement, purportedly issued by me, saying FG will pay N30,000 to each Nigerian with BVN, to help them stock up before an impending national lockdown. Not me. The so-called statement is hereby disclaimed,”
Mr Adesina therefore urged Nigerians to disregard the information as it far from the truth.
From my own opinion, I believe the federal government has the capacity to do that as other other nations in the world.
But I doubt if the money will reach the final destination if such approval is granted.
