Yemi Alade has Questions for the Lagos State Government



Due to the daily increase of confirmed cases in Nigeria, especially in Lagos, Yemi Alade has a lot of questions.

While the number of cases is still on the rise, thankfully, reports of crime have reduced. Still, we continue to see on social media about people begging on the streets, hungry. This is why Yemi Alade is asking the Lagos State Government to give an account of the ₦10 billion COVID-19 relief fund received from the Federal Government.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari, on March 29, announced a ₦10 billion relief fund for Lagos which is the central point of the coronavirus pandemic.

Yemi Alade, via Twitter, asked the state government how the fund has been allocated. According to her, the daily feeding of residents in the state needs to be looked into, as this is the main reason many have refused to stay at home despite the lockdown. She also tasked the state governor to use the BVN of residents to credit their accounts with funds.

Check out her tweet.

    Well done my dear. I hope other celebrities can bolden up and join you in putting pressure and asking for accountability. An average Nigerian won’t be heart but you guys will be noticed and perhaps listened to if not for anything for shame (if they still have any left). Well done my dear. Please other cljoin the band wagon. Put that pressure on.

    This relief disbursement is not being allocated to the right channel. The government need to do something about this.
