The Niger State Executive Council has boosted the state COVID-19 appeal fund with a donation of N5 million.
The State committee on COVID – 19 disclosed this to Newsmen in Minna at the weekend and appealed to well meaning members of the public to contribute to the fund.
The State commissioner of health, Dr.
However, the state government said they were still collating the total amount of donations received by the state government since the appeal fund was launched.
He said the appeal fund was voluntary as the government was not compelling people to donate even as he noted that some individuals preferred donating directly to their communities.
