According to the Accountant-General of the Federation Ahmed Idris, the amount spent so far represents 84% of the N36.3 billon public funds and donations received to respond to COVID-19 between 1st April, 2020 and 31st July, 2020.

  1. Liars! They should give us a complete breakdown of how this money was spent. I don’t believe they’ve spent up to this amount on Covid-19.
