Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has appealed to state governors still ‘hoarding’ COVID-19 palliatives at different warehouses in the country to distribute the relief items to citizens immediately.

The rights lawyer described as crime against humanity, the alleged ‘hoarding’ of the food items donated to states by the Private Sector Coalition Against Covid-19 also known as CACOVID.

 

He made this known on Monday in an interview with Arise TV monitored by The PUNCH.

 

Falana said:-

“It is almost like a crime against humanity just as some public officers have diverted money meant for providing palliatives for internally displaced persons.

 

“I mean you ask yourself, what level of stealing is this? And so, this is why we are worried that the members of the ruling class in Nigeria will have to have a rethink that there are certain areas you must not get to in looting the treasuries of the country.

 

“Again, I want to appeal here for warehouses that have not been touched. If palliatives have been stored, I want to appeal to all the state governors in Nigeria to emulate the example of the Sokoto State governor that simply, in the view of this challenge, distributed the items.

 

“How can a government hoard indomie? It’s intolerable. It’s provocative. Our government will have to apologise to the Nigerian people.”

  2. I would like to inform all our citizens not collect such palliatives again if distributed to them because from the initial Time it was not in their mind to distribute it.
