‘The Buhari can offer is to be radically transparent and judicious in its management of the COVID-19 funds’, new PUNCH editorial questions the Buhari led administration to give account of their CA COVID expenses.
The Coalition Against COVID-19 (CA COVID) raised over 21 billion naira to assist the federal governments in the fight against coronavirus apart from the initial N10 billion and N6.5 billion the Federal Government allocated to Lagos State and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control respectively.
“Nigerians are labouring under poverty. The irreducible minimum the Buhari regime can offer is to be radically transparent and judicious in its management of the COVID-19 funds. No details should be spared. The government should create a website and update it at speed for every individual, corporate and international donor, the amount and the equipment that were donated, and the beneficiaries. It should subject itself to media scrutiny to reduce leakages in government in general.”
