Oyo State Government Discredits Online Claims of N10,000 Palliatives, Urges Public Caution
The Oyo State Government has issued a statement advising residents to dismiss an online platform that is soliciting them to complete an alleged application form in order to avail themselves of a purported N10,000 palliative. Mr. Segun Ogunwuyi, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, categorically refuted the authenticity of the online report and referred to it as false information.
In his capacity as both the Chairman of the 15-member Sustainable Action for Economic Recovery (SAfER) committee and the Chief of Staff, Ogunwuyi cautioned the general public, particularly civil servants and students, to disregard any appeals from the mentioned online platform.
Ogunwuyi stated that his committee is diligently focused on implementing the state government’s relief initiatives in light of the subsidy removal. He highlighted several measures that have been put in place to alleviate the hardships faced by the populace, including providing food assistance to 200,000 vulnerable households.
Among the outlined packages are 100,000 instances of complimentary healthcare insurance support and a dedicated fund of N500 million to aid deserving farmers in enhancing food security. These initiatives, Ogunwuyi emphasized, are currently in progress.
He strongly advised the people of the state to exercise caution and refrain from falling victim to the false information propagated by the fake news. This misinformation falsely prompts individuals to submit their personal details online to purportedly qualify for the N10,000 cash assistance.[logo-slider]
