Nigerians Want the Government to Look Into Disbursement of Funds through BVN



On Monday evening, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his televised nationwide address to Nigerians, shared that the lockdown has been extended to 14 more days and there is a high possibility that the lockdown might get extended again.

Nigerians are questioning the federal and state government on the necessary measures that have been put in place for the sustenance of citizens during this period. In some neighbourhoods in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo and other states in the country, reports of theft, unrest, and chaos by people who have been left jobless since the lockdown commenced, has been making the rounds on social media.

People are scared, people are hungry, people are angry.

Recently, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) started the distribution of text messages to phone numbers, reminding Nigerians on how to stay safe and providing necessary updates on the current situation of COVID-19 in the country, but Nigerians don’t want that.

What Nigerians are asking is for the government to commence the disbursement of funds through Bank Verification Number (BVN) to every individual in the country.

    You think its because they don’t know about BVN? BVN was for monitoring your money so they can tax you, not to help you.

    Every single Nigerian has been scammed and enslaved by these Rent-seeking Lawyers and Accountants.

    The donation thing sef is a bigger joke. CBN’s primary responsibility is to print money. By law nobody can print or mint the Nigerian Naira apart from CBN. They can print any amount of money they like, unless they are going to tell us now they ran out of ink and paper.
