Yemi Alade questions Lagos State Government on N10 billion COVID-19 fund


Yemi Alade has stated that an account should be made concerning the N10 billion COVID-19 fund received by the Lagos State Government from the Federal Government. According to Yemi Alade, the fund has to be reviewed because of the feeding of the citizens of the state which she believes might be the reason why they have refused to obey the lockdown order to its fullest. She also urged the government to use the BVN of every citizen to distribute relief funds to them.She shared: “We call on Commissioner of Finance to Lagos state; Mr Rabiu Olowo Onaolapo To explain to us how the 10billion Naira covid19 relief fund has been allocated. What are your plans to sustain the daily feeding needs Nigerians?! This is the major reason people are not staying at home! Honourable Prof Gbenga Omotoso, Special Adviser information&strategy, what strategies have been deployed to get weekly stipends to the bus drivers, area boys, hawkers that don’t have bank accounts, so they do not see the need to join the #1millionboys &prey on the poor and innocent. Honourable Mrs Bolaji Dada (Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation) how can we get to the 49 % poverty ratio of our population in Nigeria? With the billions of naira in relief funds made available to Lagos state? Unfortunately, catering to 60yr old Nigerians will not suffice. Commissioner @ProfAkinAbayomi, as a fellow Nigerian, I trust that the rapid increase of Covid19 cases saddens you. Apart from the 5billion given to @NCDCgov &the 2billion worth of food items for 200,000 60 yr old Nigerians. How do we stay healthy if the YOUTH are HUNGRY?. Commissioner Dr Idris Salako (Physical Planning&Urban Development)how do we ensure that Nigerian that lives “hand to mouth”&pay “rent” on a daily basis don’t get evicted from their homes by landlords? Hawkers, sex-workers, beggars, conductors what plans do you have to protect them?”.
