Nigerian author and activist, Reno Omokri has revealed that the country could afford to pay her citizens 2,500 naira each to support their feeding with the Corona Virus lock downs.
The Lagos. Delta, Oyo. Enugu amongst other states has restricted movements in the state shutting down markets and social events alongside with the Federal government order to close schools. All these are measures put in place against the Corona Virus outbreak.
Reno Omokri believes the Buhari led administration is under performing in this situation as the country can render financial assistance to its citizens.
Reno said, “40 million Nigerians have BVN verified bank accounts. It will cost the FG only ₦100 billion to pay ₦2500 into each account so Nigerians can buy food during the #CoronaVirus lockdown. That’s less than NASS budget! We shouldn’t only share money during election”.
