- Fraud has been detected in the distribution of coronavirus palliative in Niger state
- It was discovered that the palliatives are being diverted to a warehouse
- The diverted palliatives are meant to provide relief to people affected by COVID-19
The Niger state Assembly has uncovered a secret warehouse where diverted COVID-19 palliatives are being kept.
The discovery was made when the Assembly decided to investigate the activities of the state task force on COVID-19.
The diverted items are said to be worth millions of naira.
They were discovered in different warehouses in Minna, the state capital.
According to The Sun newspaper, the investigative committee was chaired by Mallam Malik Madaki Bosso, a member representing Bosso constituency.
The team visited the warehouses where these items were stacked following a tip-off from the public.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that being a private school teacher during the coronavirus period is one of the hardest things a Nigerian can face. Most schools, since they are not earning money have put all their employees in limbo and as a result, turned them into blatant beggars to survive.
As a result of the dire situation faced by these teachers, some Nigerians have started raising funds to help them.
One of such gesture to help private school teachers could be found on Twitter when @Mazigburugburu1 raised N400,000, saying this will be shared at N25,000 each to 16 private school teachers.
He said that they must, however, show proof that they were private school teachers.
Hopefully, in the spirit of giving, many Nigerians will rise up to show more support for private school teachers.
Legit.ng had also reported that the federal government said findings have shown that the Madagascar COVID-19 organics cannot cure coronavirus.
The National Institute of Pharmaceutic@l Research and Development (NIPRD) in a report on Sunday, July 19, disclosed that scientific analysis of the herb showed that it is not as potent as claimed.
According to the federal government agency, studies showed that the herb does not alter the normal physiology of animals.
The director-general of NIPR, Dr. Obi Adigwe, said the herb which contains mainly Artemisia annua, works to reduce the frequency of cough with maximum dose, producing an effect equivalent to that produced by the centrally acting cough-suppressant, dihydrocodeine.
