Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development said the Covid-19 palliatives discovered in most warehouses in Nigeria, not from the ministry, as widely speculated.
In a statement, the special assistant (media) to the minister, Nneka Anibeze, said the photos and videos recorded at the warehouse indicated that the bags of rice and other items worn clearly marked state government and Ca-Covid.’
Ca-Covid is short for Coalition against Covid-19; a private sector-led task force in partnership with the federal government, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). According to the statement, the ministry did not procure, distribute or facilitate the distribution of palliatives under the Ca-Covid initiative.
