Germany is one of the top five humanitarian donors to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, behind the United States and the United Kingdomwhich come first and second respectivelyas shown on the website of Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria.

Impact of Germany’s donation: Nigeria began donating to about 2.5 million poor and vulnerable households this week, following the 14-day lockdown announced by President Muhammadu Buhari. The households are identified in 35 states.

The Federal Government plans to give out N20,000 to each person for the next four months as a way of cushioning the effect of the coronavirus pandemic. The donation from Germany will boost the Government’s efforts in helping vulnerable Nigerians get through the lockdown.

FG has also been receiving donations from companies in the private sector, with banks like Zenith BankUBA, Access Bank and Keystone Bank leading the donation with at least N1 billion each. Other sectors have also been making pledges, with the likes of DSTV offering financial support.

    Nigeria does not have any problem. As a matter of fact Africa does not have any problem. It is the rest of the world that is creating problems for Africa. Please if only the rest of the world will send back all the stolen money from Africa in their possession, and can stop stealing our natural resources, Africa will be donating to the rest of the world. In this year 2020, United Nations should stop the rest of the world stealing the resources of Africa. Enough is enough. The rest of the world should take care of their own people. Poverty is all over the world. It is insulting for the rest of the world thinking that Africa is poor, Africa cannot take care of herself. Our problem is the rest of the world. Please give us a break. We can take care of ourselves with our resources. Keep your humanitarian donations and use them for your people!!!
