Looted Covid-19 palliatives were not hoarded- NGF
Looted Covid-19 palliatives were not hoarded- NGF (Nigeria Governor’s Forum) says
This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Governors and the CACOVID Palliatives,’ signed by the Head, Media and Public Affairs of the NGF, Abudulrazaque Bello-Barkindo.
The statement read in parts
The NGF regrets the loss of lives and property occasioned by the violent protests that erupted, and calls for calm.
The NGF reemphasises 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
According to the forum ,some of the palliatives had the CACOVID stamp on them pointing to the fact that their source is unambiguous
As we know, CACOVID operations are mainly domiciled in Lagos, being the headquarters of most of the public-spirited organisations, corporate bodies and individuals that came together to form the Coalition Against COVID-19 -CACOVID.Until mid-October, when the NGF had its last meeting, up to ten states had not participated in the flag-off ceremonies for the distribution of palliatives in their states. This was because the items meant for distribution in these states had not been completely received from CACOVID.
Most states that still had palliatives kept in a warehouse did so as a strategic reserve for an anticipated second wave of the virus
The forum declared that no state has hoarded any palliative
