FG Reveals Why Donated COVID-19 Funds Can’t Be Disbursed To Nigerians
The Minister was featured on a Radio Nigeria programme today April 14, where he discussed about the money donated by private Nigerians and organizations under the auspice ”COVID-19 Relief Fund”. According to him, the Federal government does not have the power to distriubute such funds. .
He explained that after the private individuals and organizations asked the Federal government on how to go about it, they were advised to use their donations to help develop the healthcare infrastructure in the country “The private sector donors are not giving any cash to the federal government and they have made this clear to the people. .
They said they will support the fight against the pandemic by asking government where they want healthcare infrastructure to be provided. .
What government has done is to request them to build a 30-bed isolation ward and a 10-bed Intensive Care Unit in each state in the country. .
In addition, the federal government has given them a list of equipment and commodities that will also be needed.
Therefore, the issue of using their donations to provide palliative cannot arise.” Lai said.
