Covid-19: Despite donations of billion, there are still no welfare packages - Nigerian lady laments

- A Nigerian lady, Rosemary Egbo, has condemned the government lockdown on the basis that there are no relief materials

- The lady said the hefty donations made in recent days have not translated into visible provisions to help people's economy

- Rosemary said though the lockdown was done with good intent, the absence of what to eat for many families could have grave consequences

As the government declared a total lockdown in places like Lagos, Ogun and Abuja, a Nigerian lady, Rosemary Egbo, has voiced her opinion on the development.

She said that the lockdown will do more harm than good to Nigerians as there is an absence of appropriate welfare packages.

Rosemary also wondered why despite the billions of naira donated, no provisions have been given to the people.

She also said she has not seen the government distribute common safety materials like toiletries or hand sanitizers.
