Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked the Federal Government to publish weekly details of exact funds and other resources allocated by the authorities and received from the private sector to combat the spread of coronavirus in the country.
It explained that it made the request because the Nigerian government has approved a N10 billion grant (about $27 million) to fight the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The government has also reportedly released N5 billion (Naira) (about $13 million) special intervention fund to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
The organisation therefore asked the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to disclose details of funds received from federal and state governments and the private sector already used and planned use of any such funds and resources to combat the spread of coronavirus (or COVID-19) in Nigeria.
