Why FG Ignored Kano Govt N15B Intervention Fund Request To Tackle COVID-19, Adesina speaks



Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina has disclosed the reason why the request of N15 billion intervention fund placed by the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje will be ignored by the Federal Government.

According to the special adviser, the Federal Government will only be propelled to intervene when it is convinced that action is being taken in the state to fight the pandemic.

According to the PUNCH, Adesina disclosed this while speaking on Wozobia FM radio program, As E Dey Hot in Kano on Thursday.

He argued that Lagos State was supported with N10 billion by the Federal Government due to its proactive measures in tackling the pandemic.

He also explained that Lagos State Government set up proper plans and mobilized fund to fight the pandemic, adding that the state only sourced for technical, manpower and facility supports, not financial support.

Adesina said: the federal government is moved by what it saw, and say, ah! This state needs help, and then it helped Lagos state.

Any other state that is also doing its work and is not complaining, and is not saying bring money, bring money, bring money, federal government will do all that necessary to do to assist.

Technical support is very very important, very very important. Lagos state got technical support before it got financial support. Manpower support is very good. Facility support, very good.

And then, when it comes to financial support, the federal government will always do whatever is necessary to support.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the
structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?



Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
