- Nigerians on social media are reacting to the discovery of COVID-19 palliative in warehouses in some states across the country
Many are of the opinion that the development has validated the claim by humanitarian affairs minister that she distributed palliative across Nigeria
Nigerians had earlier accused the minister of lying, saying they did not receive any palliative
At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Sadiya Umar Farouq, the minister of humanitarian affairs, was criticised by many Nigerians for saying COVID-19 palliative was distributed to states across Nigeria. Many accused the minister of being economic with the truth, saying they did not benefit from the gesture.
However, in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest, many hoodlums in a surprising turn of the event have discovered and looted COVID-19 palliative stored in several warehouses reportedly belonging to state governments.

Reacting on Twitter, @AhmedAhmedkabi2 said:
“Henceforth, It is evident for us to believe that the minister of humanitarian affairs in person of Sadiya Umar Farouq had delivered the covid-19 palliatives to all states across the nation. Kawai zalunci ne na gwamnoninmu da bakar aniya ya hana su yi distributing nashi.”

“Sadiya Umar Faruq, she wasn’t lying when she said she shared palliative worth billions. Some government officials hide it in a private warehouses. It was the rioters that confirmed her innocence. Hajia a gaida ango.. Allah ya saka da alheri!”

No doubt we all owe the minister of humanitarian affairs Sadiya Umar Farouq and apology.
