"Buhari, Show Us Proofs Of The Cash Transfers Sent To Poorest Nigerians Nigerians Calls Out FG

Majority of Nigerians are demanding proofs, the federal government is in fact transferring
cash to the poorest households in the country as announced by Sadiya Farouk on Monday.

Nigeria has recorded 111 coronavirus cases which spread across 10 states and the federal capital territory.

The country also recorded its second death from the disease on Monday.

Ms. Farouk , Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development had said during a press conference by the presidential task force on the disease in Abuja, that her Ministry had begun immediate cash transfer to poorest households in the country to lessen the effect of the coronavirus.

“In Mr. President’s speech, paragraph 54, he directed that the conditional cash transfer should be given in advance of two months. This we have also done. We have directed immediate cash transfer to the poorest and most vulnerable households in the country,” she said.

She added, “Because of this COVID-19, the vulnerable groups have to expanded, because we are aware that there are people who live on daily wage, so we are also going to look at those groups of people to see how we can get this food relief intervention to them in this period.”

The Minister further stated that the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has deployed trucks of relief materials to states affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

But some Nigerians on Twitter appeared to be filled with serious doubts just as they tag the supposed relief efforts as yet another avenue for embezzlement.

They are demanding to see the demographic data of those considered entitled for the relief package, how they were selected and proof of cash tranfer to them and receipt by the beneficiaries.

They claim it is impossible for the government to make such transfer because no database exists for the poorest households in the country just as they are less likely to possess bank account amongst others.
