COVID19: President Buhari Told to Pay Nigerians ₦200,000 Each as Palliatives


Adelaja Adeoye, the National Publicity Secretary of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), has asked President Muhammadu Buhari, to pay every Nigerian a sum of N200,000 as stimulus package, over the ravaging scourge codenamed COVID-19 as citizens have been indoor and were not allowed to go to their various places of work.

He made this call in Lagos on Thursday 29th of April,2020. during a chat with newsmen.

According to him, it is necessary for the government to provide some stipends for citizens, to support individuals and families who may no longer work during the stay at home order, over the fear of Corona Virus and in order to maintain balance in the system and in various families in the country.

He made a further called on all state governors to pay double salaries to their state work force, and pay indegenes a sum of N50,000 each as paliatives.

In orderTo make this process of getting money to the citizens in an easier and transparent means, the government can partner with banks to achieve this, since over 40 million Nigerian citizens have been connected through Bank Verification Number (BVN),” he said.

However all things been equal, that is due to each Nigerians, can be paid directly into their accounts through their individual BVN and to maintain balance in distributing to the citizens of the country.

“The issue of data base is gradually being taken care of by the National Identification Management Corporation (NIMC), so, the payment process should not be delayed at all as the citizens are now complaining and mounting on a process of protesting.

“Both Federal and State government can agree to make some deductions from the FAAC and JAC, for March and April, and disburse to every citizen from the age of 18 years, to support them.”

The call is not strange according to Adelaja, because similar stimulus package is being offered to foreign countries Americans to be specific by President Donald Trump, who has earmarked two trillion dollars ($2tr), to be shared amongst all American citizens and in which this has really gone a long way to cater for the needs of the citizens in the countries.

“Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has also announced a stimulus package of $2,000 each for those who have lost their jobs over corona virus and this will be paid to them for the next four months. “Offers are also being made to other Canadians while they are at home pending when the scourge will be defeated as soon as possible.

Our government must learn to treat citizens like humans, and provide them with supports during this trying period of covid-19, in order to help every citizens to make up with their needs and to also reduced crime rate in the country.

“I would have asked the government to supply each and every homes with food items on a weekly basis, like it is being done in United Arab Emirates (UAE), but this cannot work in Nigeria, as majority of those items will end up missing in transit, apart from the fact that we cannot handle such for over 180 million people.

The only and best thing to do is a direct transfer to them, so that they can use the money to buy foodstuffs, drugs, and other items that will help them to stay alive and be comfortable,” Adelaja noted .

Adelaja stated further that the government should put efforts in place to reduce the tension and fear that has been created as a result of the Coronavirus, that “if care is not taken, the fear will have severe psychological effect on the people even after the scourge would have been defeated.”

He noted further that, “all the donations of anti #COVID19 materials, donated by corporate organizations like Access Bank, GTB, multinational, private individual like Alibaba CEO, Jack Ma, Folorunsho Alakija, Atiku Abubakar, Pastor Paul Enechie, Adeboye, and others must be strictly be monitored and should not be diverted by some corrupt individuals. They must be used for the purpose they are meant for, Adelaja concluded.”

Don't forget to share with friends and family... Thanks
