COVID – 19 Funds

Tunde Attitude, Finance

Many Nigerians thought it was foolish for Banks and others to contribute funds to govt agencies to fight Covid-19 when they should have credited their (customers) accounts instead.

They were saying why bother contribute money to expand govt capabilities to tackle this Covid-19 issue when you would have given us like 5k each to use to buy things for ourselves to chop.

If they had said, ‘as banks have contributed to the Government, they should also consider crediting their loyal customers’ I will understand. Rather they said it is foolish to contribute to the centre to fight Covid-19.

The mindset of some Nigerians is part of our problem.

The same mindset that will drive people to collect 5k rice to vote someone instead of demanding upgrade of health centres or schools.
