FG excludes Lagos, Borno, Delta from cash transfer as North West gets biggest share

• MURIC alleges corruption in sharing of COVID19 relief materials


Lagos, Borno, Delta states have been excluded from the National Cash Transfer for COVID-19, while the North West zone gets the biggest share. The National Cash Transfer Office (NCTO) info-graphics created on April 11, 2020 and made public by the International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) revealed the discrepancies in the cash transfer scheme.

It disclosed that 1,126,211 households were currently benefitting from the conditional cash transfer including: Katsina (133,227), Zamfara (130,764), Jigawa (99,004), Kano (84,148) and Plateau (78,431), while Borno, Delta and Lagos got zero allocation, among others.

Speaking to The Guardian, a public analyst, Bola Bolawole, lamented what he described as unequal relationship among states of the country given the lopsidedness in the national transfer scheme.

He said, “While there is nothing national in it, it is actually a transfer of the wealth of one section of the country to another. It shows the nepotism and tribalism of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, whether in appointments or allocation of resources, projects and even the coronavirus pandemic.”

On his part, Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said the states being totally locked down received nothing, adding that the country could not continue this way.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has introduced a scheme to cushion the effect of the lockdown on on its residents. The new palliatives were rolled announced less than 24 hours after President Buhari extended restriction of movement in Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The scheme came on the heels of the commencement of the second part of Food Stimulus Packages being distributed to 250,000 residents since the lockdown directive came into effect.

Besides, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has advised the federal, state and local government authorities to create feeding centres urgently in order to cushion the effect of the extension of COVID-19 lockdown.

It said this followed its discontent with the handling of relief materials meant for poor Nigerians, noting that the extension was the best option, especially with the new revelation that index cases had increased.

MURIC’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement said, “Government at all levels should device means of making the diversion of palliatives cumbersome, unprofitable and unnecessary.

Meanwhile, the Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari administration of dividing Nigeria along ethnic lines amid the coronavirus disease.

Leader of BZF, Benjamin Onwuka, yesterday said at a time when countries of the world were united in seeking solutions to the pandemic and cushioning the effects of lockdown on their citizens, the Buhari government was politicising distribution of palliatives.

His words: “It is now clear that the Buhari-led government has recognised us a people who are no longer part of Nigeria. This is manifest in the way the South East people are being excluded in welfare schemes.

“First, it was the $22.7b loan, which made provisions for other geopolitical zones, except the South East. As if that was not enough, the South East has been schemed out of the COVID-19 palliatives. They are sharing money to their cronies in the North, neglecting those in the South East.”

Lagos is the epicenter of beggy beggy...I never knew the height of begging until I came to Lagos.

Even people in suits will beg you in Lagos..I think the state government should look into that, it's nearly impossible to walk on the streets of Lagos without meeting one or two healthy people that will beg you for money.

If I walk down to shops in my street to buy something, the youths there will beg you for change, if they see you drinking beer in a bar, they will come and beg you, if you go to the bank whether to carry out transactions or file complaints, the securities will beg you. It is disgusting..

Lagos youths and elders need the palliatives more than the norths.

Why would Northern Nigeria have the highest shares, after all they have the highest rate of poverty in the world.

Poverty stinking illiterate people

Their dumb brothers and sisters in government should do well to offer them education and career apportunities so that their misery can be lifted forever.

Those listed states that are excluded from the scheme are the ones that generates more internal revenue for the country but when it comes to critical situations like this, that need utmost attention and provision they will be denied their Civic benefits as citizens of dx country.

U now see reasons people vote for tribe rather than on merit, Buhari has nothing to do with being president. Tinubu, sycophants and his personal interest pushed him to it. In a lockdown is it only in d North that poor Nigerians exist? What a show of shame

If this thread had said FG includes any state from the SE, by now it would have reached page 30 with comments by YoruMuslims like Igbo people have never appreciated that Buhari is the next best thing after sliced bread, Buhari saves SE from imminent hunger, despite not voting enmasse for him Buhari has delivered electoral promises to the SE.

Now that much money is being disbursed to northern states without lockdown while Lagos and Ogun citizens are not getting much due to locked down and the people are blocking roads to steal foodstuffs, old women ready to sell their bodies, One Million Boys writing letters to cut off hands, vandalisation of Bread vans, Awawa boys raiding Agege and environs, 10 cups of rice being given to one whole street as palliative etc everywhere is silent.

They are waiting for an Igbo related thread to express anger over their condition in life but at the same time scream and shout 'from all of us at MANNABBQGRILLS we thank our darling daddy Buhari.

This is insanity. How can the epic centre of the whole thing, that has been under complete lockdown with millions of inhabitants be excluded?

Katsina state, a useless and valueless state adding next to zero value and not even the epic centre, is topping the list.

What was the rationale behind that?
