The Federal Government has disclosed that arrangements are on top gear to expand palliatives to reach all Nigerians who needed it.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, disclosed this at a media briefing in Abuja, Friday.
He further disclosed that efforts are being made to ensure that the palliatives reach Nigerians with ease.
“The PTF has been receiving feedback from the public on the challenges and efforts are being intensified to make the palliatives approved by government reach you with ease. This delivery is being done in close collaboration with the State authorities.
“Similarly, arrangements to finalise modalities for the expansion of the palliatives are in top gear.
“I use this opportunity to thank all public spirited persons and corporate bodies that have voluntarily provided food and other palliatives to the poor, the vulnerable, the sick and the aged,” he stressed.
The SGF noted that the government is working hard to provide adequate security to all citizens and also improve the economy.
“The PTF continues to work with other sectors of government managing the economic, security and other aspects of the national response.
“Early this week the Inspector general was here to brief on the readiness of his men.
“We wish to reassure Nigerians that the entire security apparatus of the nation is awake and alive to protect you.
“In return, we appeal further that you should please remain law abiding and obey the orders and other guidelines,” Boss Mustapha, appealed.
While expressing the determination of the government to flatten the curve of the Covid-19, the SGF appealed to Nigerians to continue to obey the orders to stay at home and respect the advisories on personal hygiene, social distancing and report symptoms to the nearest appropriate medical facility.
