With ‘hungervirus’ threatening to kill people like coronavirus, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has come out on video to reveal that he and Buhari are thinking of ways to help daily wage workers that are now forced to stay at home in states that have been locked down. Watch video below. (Sir, seriously consider helping people through BVN. Pay the money saved from subsidy removal into people’s accounts and share lots of impounded imported rice, e.t.c., to the hungry masses.)
While briefing journalists on his meeting with President Buhari, Prof. Osinbajo said (video loading…):
Many of our citizens are daily wage workers and the President has expressed concerns about this. We are now thinking of ways to provide succour for the period they are unable to work. pic.twitter.com/TEJeCCM728

That succour needs to happen very fast. In Ogun State, people don’t sleep anymore. News reports say robbers now move in their hundreds with okada to rob and steal even food. Lockdown MUST be accompanied with adequate food supply.
Some Ogun State residents are complaining that after being robbed of their food and money, they have no more food to eat or money to buy more. And they cannot go out to work or do business because of the lockdown.
Federal Government, send down help fast!
