A coalition of civil society groups, led by the Human and Environmental Development Agenda, on Sunday urged the Federal Government and the 36 governors to make public guidelines for the distribution of food and other materials to vulnerable individuals in the midst of the coronavirus-induced lockdown.

HEDA Chairman, Mr Olanrewaju Suraju, in a statement also urged government at all levels to made public simple and verifiable means of distributing funds and materials collected on behalf of the vulnerable.

He announced that the coalition was mobilising 510 volunteers across the country to monitor the process.

Suraju said, “We are concerned about what appears to be a lack of data, a process devoid of digital dashboard that will ensure the food being distributed reaches the poorest of the poor and not vested political interests.”

Also, the Convener, Mona Audu Foundation, Mrs Zahrah Mustapha-Audu, said in Abuja on Sunday that the non-governmental organisation had distributed relief materials to Nigerians, especially vulnerable groups in the Federal Capital Territory, Lagos, Kogi and Ogun states.

Mustapha-Audu said, “We have made good our promise that we will be distributing relief materials, including food and essential supplies to Nigerians to assist them in this trying time of COVID-19 and lockdown in FCT, Lagos and Ogun.”
