Nigerian Governors Deny Hoarding COVID-19 Palliatives

Nigerian governors have denied allegations that they hoarded coronavirus (COVID-19) palliatives meant for distribution to vulnerable Nigerians to help during the first wave of the pandemic.

The denial comes after reports of warehouses around the country being looted of food and medication.

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) in a statement, posted on it website, said: “The erroneous impression in the public domain that these palliatives were hoarded is not just inaccurate, entirely erroneous and untrue but also mischievous, to say the least.

“Some other states that still had palliatives in their warehouses chose to keep a strategic reserve ahead of a projected second wave of COVID-19. As of a couple of weeks ago, some states were still receiving palliatives from the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.”

News Central reports that a peaceful protest to demand an end to police brutality and reforms of the Nigeria Police Force had turned violent after it was hijacked by suspected hoodlums. After the hijack, the hoodlums went on a looting spree, creating chaos and anarchy.
