FG commences payment of cash transfer to the vulnerable, as lockdown takes effect

The Federal Government is set to commence immediate payment of conditional cash transfer to the poorest and most vulnerable households in the country.

Due to the impact of the lockdown on the finances of many income earners, the category of vulnerable groups has also been expanded to accommodate more persons.


The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk stated this while fielding questions from journalists after the Joint Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja on Monday afternoon.

“The president has directed that we start immediate payment of this cash transfer to the poorest and vulnerable households in our country.  

“Because of this COVID-19, the vulnerable groups have to be expanded because we are aware that there are people who live on daily wage and so we are also going to look at those groups of people to see how we can take food to them in these affected areas,” she said.

She noted that other palliatives being put in place include the sustenance of the school-feeding programme to help families feed the children even while they stay at home and the distribution of relief materials.

“We are aware of residents of satellite communities around Lagos and Abuja whose livelihood will surely be affected by the lockdown. We shall deploy relief materials to ease their pains in the coming weeks.”

She said that trucks belonging to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) had been deployed to Lagos, Ogun and Abuja to commence distribution immediately.


On the grant of a three-month moratorium, she stated that the relevant institutions had received directives to commence immediately and that several other palliative measures would also come up in due time.


On the lockdown: Speaking earlier, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha emphasized that the lockdown was total and no breaches would be tolerated. Only essential service providers would be allowed to operate during the period.

“We are not sure how long this will last, as the countries that first started battling with COVID19 are still battling with it. It is a national challenge and we have to do everything within our power. 

“Nothing will happen to us if we lock down for two weeks and allow us do the tracing of the contacts of the confirmed cases,” he said.

Cases so far: Speaking on the confirmed cases, the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, had noted that it takes about four weeks for a patient to be discharged, and this can only be done if the patient had repeatedly tested negative, and was feeling better.


He also gave a breakdown of the current confirmed cases.

“About 80% of the people who contracted the coronavirus disease either showed no symptom or very mild symptoms. Of the remaining 20%, about 15% can be quite severe while 5 % is critical,” he said.

He added that the NCDC is only testing those who had either returned from a foreign trip recently or had had close contact with any returnee since the virus is imported, not indigenous.

“If you never had a contact like that, and you have not been abroad, it is very unlikely that you are a coronavirus victim,” he said.

He discouraged people, who wanted to undergo the test just to put their mind at ease, as he insisted that they were not likely to have it if they had no contact.

We should not succumb to this or else we may die of HUNGER which is the worst pandemic in the world. Even worst than this Covid-19 that we are scared of.. let’s wake up now..

    This is just a mere political manifesto to me by the aides of President bBuhari, let’s take this statement to be true as directed by Mr president however what’s the tendency that this foods and money being kept under the care of some Presidential aides through several agencies would definitely get to the poor and vulnerable Masses in the society. The last time i checked we as a republic is running a democratic government where we have several tiers of government and if you should ask me i feel the federal parliamentarian are closest Ally between the masses and the Executive because they represent a constituency and the federal parliamentarians can also reach their constituents through their local parliamentarians and the same goes to the states for this should be taken from the grassroot if this is gonna be transparent.

    FG should please reach every Nigerian persons through their bvn account cos right now most account are empty with out money since the lockdown honesty speaking if there is any means for bankers to show the empty accounts then some poorest with out account should receive the relieved materials because some families are even sick seriously right now and need some medications, the released materials wound not buy medicine for them so pls the FG should do the calculations very well in other for every Nigerian to be bless. thanks.

    Some families are even sick seriously right now so the transfer of money should have been better and easier to all Nigerian persons through their bvn then some areas should be visit for the sharing of the materials, those that has no account. Thanks.

  27. Onoja Victoria

    April 3, 2020 at 1:29 am

    Many accounts are empty as I speak some bankers can even testify about that because this lockdown even started in many states waited and waited before the president mentioned the name of only 3 States in Nigeria the indoor is actually more than a week now in many states especially in plateau state, people are indoor since and no vehicles from other States to plateau nor from plateau to other States now, so pls the adequate arrangement should be made so that people lockdown for protection will still be alive. The starvation is severe, families with bank account with out money does not means they have money and their rich so all savings accounts with a prove of bvn should receive the alert and then look forward to some share released materials to some areas, every body are lockdown now no body will run helter skelter because of the released materials but the people sharing should pls be sincere in a time like this, for Nigerian to be reach by FG.

We are suffering, starving and denied us our Human Rights of free movement yet they neglected us. Millions are dying.
    Some good Nigerian donated money for them in order to help the masses, yet they took them to their own purse.
    If something good is not worth doing, a day is coming that everybody in the country will give themselves personal freedom. It’s not the virus alone that kills, Hunger kills too.

They don’t have fear of God at all ( our governments ). Nothing is disturbing there own salaries. But they have nothing for masses,some of there party members were even use the situation on ground for there own campaign. This messy situation as exposed daily workers and salary earners that we are nothing to our government i belief that God past them no matter what is there thinking toward us. I kindly belief if it is in Nigeria here this virus begin all our rich men would have run go abroad. And for all those that donated to federal government, they have a mission to boost there appointment and to upgrade there businesses. No matter what man did,he will surely stand before God one day.

FG suspends evacuation of Nigerians in Diaspora

Federal government has suspended evacuation of Nigerians in diaspora until a new structure is put in place.




The federal government has suspended the evacuation of Nigerians in diaspora until a new structure is put in place to handle the evacuees.

This was disclosed by Foreign affairs minister Geoffrey Onyeama during the Presidential Task Force media briefing on Wednesday afternoon.


“We have been asked to cease all evacuation for now, until the whole structure is put in place” he stated, adding that he is hopeful that the new structure will be in place by next week.

According to the minister, the current arrangement has been quite restrictive as the ministry is often constrained by the resources available in determining the frequency of evacuation flights, and the number of people to be evacuated.

He said that the government is aware of the challenges being faced by Nigerians in diaspora, especially those in China.

Pre-flight testing now a condition for evacuation 

Part of the new arrangement is the pre-flight testing. Going forward, pre-flight is a condition for Nigerians in diaspora to get on the evacuation flights back to Nigeria.

“Anybody that is going to be evacuated will first of all, have to undergo a test from the country that they are leaving from, at least five days before travel and not later than nine days before travel. That will be a precondition for evacuation to Nigeria.  

“If they are positive of course, they will not be able to get on the flight. If they are negative, they get on the flight,” he stated.

Evacuees will not be quarantined in hotels anymore

According to the minister, the evacuees will no longer be quarantined in hotels for 14 days at designated hotels, but will be allowed to go self-isolate at home after their samples have been collected at the airports.

The ministry will also retain the passports of all evacuees whose samples have been collected before they are allowed to go self-isolate at home.

Results from those samples will be available within a day or two. Those who are positive will be taken into isolation centres and those who are negative will complete the 14 day period of isolation after which they can come to collect their passport and go their way,” he explained.

The Minister noted that with this new arrangement, the government could increase the number of people being evacuated and the frequency of flights.

He appreciated Aliko Dangote and other private sector participants who rallied around to make these sample collection units available at the airports.

He also revealed that among the people evacuated, 50 trafficked Nigerian girls were rescued from Lebanon.

Governor El Rufai extends Kaduna State’s lockdown by 2 weeks starting June 1st

The Governor noted that most of the cases recorded in the state have either been from persons with a history of interstate travel. Therefore, citizens must take responsibility for their safety by adhering to guidelines.



Kaduna state governor, El-Rufai tests positive to coronavirus, El Rufai extends lockdown by 2 weeks from June 1, releases revised regulations

Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El Rufai has extended the lockdown in the state by two weeks, effective from June 1, 2020. This was announced by the Deputy Governor, Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, who spoke on behalf of the governor during a state broadcast on Tuesday evening after the Eid celebration.

There will be a relaxation of movement on Wednesday and Thursday, May 27 and 28, and neighborhood markets will open from 10 am-4 pm on both days to allow residents to purchase their needs before the lockdown takes effect on Monday June 1.


During the two week period, there will be adjustments during this period to allow the easing of restrictions in certain sectors and enable residents to resume their jobs.

3 lockdown-free days

Balarabe stated that there will be a three-day window every week to allow residents to shop their essential needs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Business owners that meet the stipulated requirements will also be allowed to operate on these days. Artisans such as vulcanisers, welders, and mechanics will also be allowed to operate on the same days.

“The revised regulations are intended to preserve the state’s ability to protect citizens, empower citizens to lead the fight against Covid-19 and make necessary adjustments to permit the safe resumption of the pursuit of livelihoods in more sectors” she stated.

These businesses and organisations must remain shut

Under the revised regulations, schools and places of worship will remain shut until directed otherwise. Markets will also be closed except on the lockdown free days, while the government engages with relevant stakeholder on the circumstances for a safe reopening.

Restaurants and eateries will not entertain sit-in customers but are allowed to offer takeaway services. In the same vein, sporting centers, event centers, and relaxation centers are to remain closed. Hotels are to also remain shut as well, as they have not been specifically licensed as essential service providers during this period.

The public sector will also use the two-week extension to prepare for limited resumption. Heads of Ministries, Department and Agencies will ensure that government offices are reconfigured for physical distancing and that handwashing facilities are available.


All of the regulations are to be reviewed after two weeks.

The governor commended the state’s residents for complying with earlier directives of the lockdown, despite the inconveniences. He assured them that their sacrifices have not been in vain.

“These sacrifices have not been in vain. Without them, infection rates will be much higher. Many citizens have embraced the exercise of personal responsibility, including wearing facemasks when outdoors, washing hands with soap and water regularly, observing physical distancing and avoiding large crowds. These new habits will help keep our communities safe” he said.

He noted that most of the cases recorded in the state have either been from persons with a history of interstate travel or have been in contact with people who traveled inter-state. Therefore, citizens must take responsibility for their safety by adhering to guidelines.
