The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced to give out N30k to every Nigerian who has a verified BVN account.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina said “the N30000 relief fund will be given to every Nigerian with verified BVN account. I am sure the fund will go a long way to help Nigerians stock up their home during the stay at home order by the Government.”

‘We have tabled about 40 Millions Nigerians with valid BVN, the relief fund will be disbursed by the Ministry of Finance starting from today or latest tomorrow. Nigerian will start receiving credit alert to their bank account.”

  1. They said they have tabled 40m BVN, we suppose to have more than 40m BVN in Nigeria, let them do the proper thing to get the full or complete record of the total BVN in Nigeria.

  2. We beg they do it. It should be done with the greatest transparency, not favoring one ethnic group over the other, one state over the other etc.
    Moreover, if it is truly paid, how can we collect it to buy wares when the whole country is under lock and key.
    Government should think and act fast.

  3. It’s a good one from the FG, but let it be done with all urgency and integrity since they are using the BVN method.Together we all will curb the spread of covid-19.
