Oyo Govt Debunks N10,000 Palliatives For Civil Servants, Students
The Oyo State Government has urged residents to ignore an online platform asking them to fill out a purported application form to benefit from its N10,000 palliative.
The Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Segun Ogunwuyi, who debunked the online report in a statement on Friday in Ibadan, described it as fake news.
Ogunwuyi, who doubles as the chairman of the 15-man Sustainable Action for Economic Recovery (SAfER), asked the general public, especially civil servants and students, to disregard the call from the online platform.
The chief of staff said his committee was already working hard on the state government’s relief packages in the wake of subsidy removal.
He said that various palliative measures would mitigate the sufferings of the masses, such as food palliatives for 200,000 vulnerable households.
According to him, the packages include 100,000 free healthcare insurance supports and N500 million for deserving farmers under food security, among others.
Ogunwumi cautioned the people of the state not to fall victim to the fake news that asked them to submit their personal information online to be eligible for the purported N10,000 cash support.
