COVID-19 Palliative Found In Lagos WareHouse, Not Linked To FG – Umar Farouq

Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development has debunked the news making rounds that the COVID-19 palliatives found in a Lagos WareHouse came from Federal government.

She stressed that CA-COVID is no way linked to the federal government neither did the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, procure, distribute or facilitate the distribution of palliatives under the Ca-Covid initiative.

“The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development has been made aware of trending messages on and off social media alluding to the fact that Covid-19 palliatives found in a Lagos warehouse were from the ministry” the statement reads.

“This is nothing but a tissue of lies.

“The photos and videos recorded at the warehouse show that the bags of rice and other items were clearly marked ‘Lagos State Government and Ca-Covid’.

“Ca-Covid is short for Coalition Against Covid-19, a private sector-led task force in partnership with the Federal Government, the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control NCDC and the World Health Organization WHO with the sole aim of combating Covid-19 in Nigeria.

“The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development did not procure, distribute or facilitate the distribution of palliatives under the Ca-Covid initiative.

“The ministry, therefore, wishes to inform the general public that it has nothing to do with the items found in that Lagos warehouse.”

Recall thaton Thursday, a warehouse located at Benster Crescent, popularly called Monkey Village was broken and all items (mostly food items) found in the warehouse were carted away by some hoodlums believed to have joined the #EndSARS protest.
