Memebers of the Nigeria Governors Forum NGF, which comprises of the thirty six states governors have denied hoarding Palliatives that are designed for the people as cushion following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
they described the impression of the public domain as erroneous that the palliatives were not hoarded following instructions by the state governors, adding that they stand for justice, improved governance and a progressive Nigeria.
In a statement on Monday, the Head of Media and Public Affairs of NGF, Abdulrazaque Barkindo;
“A lot of the information circulating the social media needs to be fact-checked. The NGF pleads with members of the public to desist from spreading rumours which further creates panic and stampede.
“For example, some of the properties stolen and vandalized, include palliatives set aside for vulnerable members of society.
“The NGF reemphasizes and corrects the impression that palliatives found in warehouses that were broken into in Lagos and some other states were kept in storage for members of the society especially our vulnerable citizens.
“The erroneous impression in the public domain that these palliatives were hoarded is not just inaccurate, entirely erroneous and untrue but also mischievous, to say the least.
