By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nigeria’s war against COVID-19 has been boosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which has donated $1 million to the federal governments ongoing efforts.

The fund, which was received on Tuesday by the UN Finance support platform, One UN COVID-19 Response Basket Fund, is meant to bolster Nigeria’s response in the management of the outbreak in the country, and the post-crisis challenges, particularly in the protection of vulnerable persons, according to the United Nations Development Programme.

The UNDP Representative in Nigeria, Mohamed Yahya, said in a statement that as a COVID-19 response financing and investment platform, the One UN Response Basket Fund provides a timely opportunity to stand with Nigeria and channel financial contributions toward the COVID-19 multi-sectoral response.
