The Presidency has denied ever promising to give the sum of N30,000 to each Nigerian with a bank account that has a Bank Verification Number, BVN.
A reported had quoted the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, as declaring the development as a way of cushioning the hardship which might be brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
”The President announced the relief package to be given out N30,000 to every Nigerian who has a verified BVN account to ease pressure posed by the order to lockdown economic activities.
“The N30,000 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,” the report quoted Adesina as saying.
Femi Adesina has now taken to Twitter to debunk the report.
“Fake news peddlers have concocted a statement, purportedly issued by me, saying FG will pay N30,000 to each Nigerian with BVN, to help them stock up before an impending national lockdown. Not me.
”The so-called statement is hereby disclaimed”, he wrote.
