The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced to give out N30k to every Nigerian who has a verified BVN account.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina said “the N30000 relief fund will be given to every Nigerian with verified BVN account. I am sure the fund will go a long way to help Nigerians stock up their home during the stay at home order by the Government.”
‘We have tabled about 40 Millions Nigerians with valid BVN, the relief fund will be disbursed by the Ministry of Finance starting from today or latest tomorrow. Nigerian will start receiving credit alert to their bank account.”
*The relief fund will only be given through BVN so it will be waste of time to start rushing to open many accounts.”
In the gesture, the central bank of Nigeria has tabled about N10b credit funds to small businesses and individual for quick loan during the trial period, Nigerians advised getting more information on how to access the loan.
