Niger Commissioners Donate N5million to COVID-19 Fund.


From Dan Amasingha, Minna.


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.

Makun Sidi explained that  the state  has been receiving  inquiries from so many quarters on how the state has been  able to  curtail the spread of COVID- 19 in the state

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.
