FAKE NEWS: FG denies spraying chemicals from skies midnight using jet
Fake News Alert On COVID-19
Kindly disregard the post being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms, about federal government of Nigeria ‘spreading’ chemicals from the skies at midnight, using a private jet, as a way of fighting coronavirus.
The post is completely false and not from the Hon. Minister of Health as being circulated, and should be ignored.
Federal and state governments in Nigeria are doing everything possible to contain the virus through conventional, professional and safe methods, just as the ministry of health and presidency have been updating Nigerians regularly through official channels.
Find below President Buhari’s latest update on Covid19:
“Protecting Nigerians from the Coronavirus is a key priority for us as a Government. We have the Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) working round-the-clock with several other agencies, as well as State Governments, to ensure this.
“I have absolute confidence in the relevant Ministers in the cabinet, the Presidential Task Force on Coronavirus which I recently established, and the officials of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), who are all providing constant updates and professional counsel.”
