Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye has given a piece of of advice to billionaires and philanthropists who donate to the public during the lockdown brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The senator wrote on his Instagram page,
“My singular advise to our billionaires, Corporate Nigeria, multinationals, philanthropists and donors. Please buy medicament, food and drinks plus money and share to the people directly at the federal or state level. I no hear English ooo so don’t ask me why.”
Dino Melaye’s advice comes after the Presidential Task Force on the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic said it has no control over the multi-billion naira contributions that have so far been announced by various donors towards the fight against the pandemic.
Chairman of the task force and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha said earlier this month that the only thing so far received by the task force was the materials donated recently by the founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma.
