It will be hard to know all the Nigerian billionaires who have contributed millions and billions for the fight against coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) but I have the list of every individual, co-operate bodies and banks who have donated a reasonable amount of money to fight and stop the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria.
Before the list, some questions are being asked in social media and online forums about the spending of the billions contributed by all these well known Nigerian billionaires, banks, churches, and other institutions. That is not all, let not forget that the Nigerian Government has already mapped out billions of naira for the fight against COVID 19 since the very beginning.
What about the millions of dollars donated by international bodies, It's strange how things are being done in Nigeria and an appropriate account will not be provided for all the money donated in Nigerian. Maybe the money is being used to supply rice to the state Government.
One of the news headlines yesterday was an accusation from River State Governor Nyesom Wike who accused the Federal Government of supplying expired rice to the state Government. The news headline says:
Nyesom Wike, We Can’t Accept Expired Rice, Hunger Won’t Kill Us - Governor Tells FG
On the distribution of palliatives from the federal government, Wike said he rejected the over 1000 bags of rice because they were expired, adding that it was wrong for the Federal government to have asked Rivers State to go and take delivery of the trucks of rice in Calabar, the Cross River State capital. He also stated that the disbursement of palliatives to states to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus was selective and laced with bias.
This is the kind of news we have been seeing in Nigeria, whether the rice is expired rice or not is none of my business but my concern is, where are all this money donated from banks, churches, and some billionaires in Nigeria. Nigerian banks have enough to donate to the federal government while they are busy charging their customers for receiving and sending money.
Funny enough that even some churches are trying to show off buy donating to FG while 50% of their church members are dying in hunger, as they say, charity begins at home but this time around charity begins with FG. I will be listing the names of every individual, co-operate bodies and banks who have donated for the fight against coronavirus, I will like to share one more strange news headline.
Deputy Governor In Trouble For Transferring COVID-19 Fund To A Woman's Account
A Deputy governor in one of the states is in trouble for not coordinating the COVID-19 containment campaign well.
Following the release of an N250 million vote for the purchase of basic items to curtail the pandemic, His Excellency wasted no time in transferring the cash to a woman’s account.
The state is still waiting for the supply of essential medical supplies.
The attitude of the deputy governor has forced the state to lag in the anti-COVID-19 campaign.
Hmmm!, there is light at the end of the tunnel but trust me some people will wish that this COVID 19 never ends because it has allowed them to grab millions and billions of naira and dollars overnight but let them pray that coronavirus doesn't locate them.
