Covid-19: Man showcases Ogun state relief materials to 100 houses, cries out

- A Nigerian man, Kazeem Idris Olamide, has shared a video of items he claimed Ogun state government asked them to share to 100 houses

- In a picture and video he sent to Legit.ng, items like tomato pastes and others could be spotted

The world is taking an increasing hit from the rising cases of coronavirus. What seems to be worsening situations for many is the accompanied compulsory lockdown put in place to curtail the spread.

To cushion the economic hardship of many, some state governments in Nigeria have gone on an alleviation journey with relief materials.

Some Nigerians have, however, complained that the relief materials given to them are just a joke. Recall a man said that he could not feed his large family with the rice they were given. Days after then, a video also emerged where an old woman bitterly complained about the miserable morsel the government gave her to feed on.

In a message sent to Legit.ng, another Nigerian with the name Kazeem Idris Olamide, has bitterly complained about the relief materials Ogun state government asked them to share to 100 houses in a CDA.

He said that it is highly uncalled for that the government would expect them to share such.

The video he sent shows some sachets of tomato paste and other items sitting on a bench. He said that the bigger nylon among the displayed materials is empty and only bore an imprint of the state government.

The items were displayed on a bench in an unknown compound.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a landlord in Brooklyn, Mario Salerno, waived rent for his 200 tenants, telling them they do not have to bother about paying for the month of April.

The owner of 80 apartments in Williamsburg wrote a note to each of his tenants to inform them about the decision.

It should be noted that even before the generosity became known, some of his tenants were already worried about how they would pay up considering that most of them were out of jobs because of the lockdown.
