An alleged monumental fraud of over N8billion has been discovered in one of the Southwest states Covid-19 Committee of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
At the moment all eyes are on the presidential task force on COVID-19 and the NCDC on the alleged ongoing fraud.
The fraud, it was gathered, was established in the area of inflation in the numbers of victims; purchase of substandard drugs and protective materials; inflation of contract budgets and direct embezzlement of amount of about N8billion.
This gives credence to the outcries by Nigerians that, much as they believe there is Covid-19, it has become a visible source of pauperizing the masses, more so that no meaningful developmental projects are being embarked upon by state governors.
They are busy over-bloating figures, both in terms of victims and equipment they purport to have purchased, all in a bid to continue syphoning money.
