Federal Government of Nigeria $6.9 billion Corona Virus Loan from international lenders to fight the pandemic another way of milking her citizens dry.
Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Vanguard newspaper on 8th April 2020 described this COV-19 $6.9 billion as a ploy by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to deceive Nigerians.
Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed had in a meeting with federal lawmakers recently hinted on plans to set up an 500 billion Naira intervention fund to battle the global pandemic while also noting that government would seek foreign loans from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, IMF and others to cushion the COVID-19 impact on the economy.
Reacting to the development, however, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Diran Odeyemi tasked government to come clean on what has happened to the billions of Naira already donated by well-meaning Nigerians as palliatives to a vulnerable lot of the society.
Do not forget that Mrs Okpe from Ogun state pen-down that she is not suffering the illness which is quarantine for, she said her family she left behind before coming back to Nigeria is well and healthy in U.S. Meanwhile, Funke Akindele in a video explains why husband held birthday party amidst COVID-19 pandemic It is clear that this government is using Coronavirus pandemic as a means to make the citizens to suffer from hunger virus while enriching their account. Seeking of foreign loan when the COVID-19 is a global phenomenon irrespective of the billions of naira raised so far by some billionaires without how the money have been spent is on called for.
Federal Government should come up with clear statement on how Nigerians received the alleged 20,000 Naira Covid-19 palliative packages were selected and possibly gazette their information for public notice. Moreover, it’s our money and we should know how it was spent.
