CACOVID is dismayed /surprised to see the videos making the rounds on social media of undistributed food palliatives that are part of our Covid -19 response to support Nigerians..
Over the past few months, we have been working with all State Governments and FCT Minister, to distribute these food relief items to 1.7 million vulnerable families across the nation, as part of our private sector response to the covid-19 pandemic.
Given that the States oversee all relief efforts and know their citizens best, we have worked with every Governor, utilizing a combination of our CACOVID protocols and the States’ existing structures and processes to ensure food items reach the intended beneficiaries.
