(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has accused some Nigerian governors of exploiting the ongoing efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria to obtain funds from the federal government, corporate bodies and foreign donors.
NEF made the allegation in Kaduna, on Thursday, April 30, 2020 through a statement signed by Professor Ango Abdullahi. According to the statement, the country’s fortunes could only improve with good policies barked with proper management of economic resources.
The NEF commended the international community, the federal government and corporate organizations for their contributions to the ongoing war on COVID-19, calling on the federal government to ensure that all contributions made in support of ongoing efforts against the pandemic were judiciously managed.
