Nigerians Want the Government to Look Into Disbursement of Funds through BVN

On Monday evening, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his televised nationwide address to Nigerians, shared that the lockdown has been extended to 14 more days and there is a high possibility that the lockdown might get extended again.
Nigerians are questioning the federal and state government on the necessary measures that have been put in place for the sustenance of citizens during this period. In some neighbourhoods in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo and other states in the country, reports of theft, unrest, and chaos by people who have been left jobless since the lockdown commenced, has been making the rounds on social media.
People are scared, people are hungry, people are angry.
Recently, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) started the distribution of text messages to phone numbers, reminding Nigerians on how to stay safe and providing necessary updates on the current situation of COVID-19 in the country, but Nigerians don’t want that.
What Nigerians are asking is for the government to commence the disbursement of funds through Bank Verification Number (BVN) to every individual in the country.

Here’s what Nigerians are saying on the streets of Twitter:
I repeat, all the donations announced by Nigerian billionaires are fake, at best they are government patronage.

UBA & First Bank for instance could have easily paid their customers via BVN. The only reason Buhari, the APC has refused to is because they are LOOTERS!!

38.5 million bank accounts has Bank Verification Number according to the Nigerian Interbank Settlement Scheme.

38,500,000*20,000 = 770 Billion

If the president and the government decides to , they won’t even spend up to 1trillion

There's hunger in the land @MBuhari
The 14 days lockdown is necessary.....

What is also necessary is to credit Nigerians through verified BVN.

If people are hungry they might take to crime.

So now!!!!

About 40% of Nigerians are banked while the remaining are unbanked... taking one route it will take time or unreach to some vulnerable, but i thought the FG to use both route in order to extend palliatives. But there are selfishness among us
