Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian in the US and a publisher, Taiye Olayemi, revealed how the American government has been taking care of them during the lockdown.
In an interview with the Legit TV video team, he said that the govt gave them $1200 (N468,168.00) as palliative so that they do not go hungry during the pandemic.
Apart from that, he said the US government has been working hard investing in the country's food bank.
On how the food bank works, he said anybody could go there and register and some necessary food items would be given to them.
Taiye also said that though the money that was given to them cannot be compared to how much they earned when they go out to work, it is still something as it has kept many afloat in taking care of basic needs.
