Nigerians Shocked That Govt Begs For Ventilators After Receiving Over 13Billion Naira Donation

Nigerians are shocked the Ministry of Finance and Budget begs for ventilators from industrial engineer, Elon Musk. This was revealed via the ministry’s official Twitter handle.

End of March, Elon Musk had tweeted that “We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or @Tesla know.”

Some are surprised that with over N13.5 billion donated by individuals to support government in the fight against coronavirus, why would the government still be begging for ventilators publicly.

In its tweet (apparently deleted) at 11.35 pm, 31st March, the ministry tweeted in reply to Elon Musk “Dear @elonmusk @tesla, the Federal Government of Nigeria needs support with 100 – 500 ventilators to assist with #COVID19 cases rising every day in Nigeria.

However, some argued that the government did not do anything wrong to beg as the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic is costly and massive, while others believe they had embezzled the billions of Naira raised – hence they are begging for ventilators.

Elon Reeve Musk is an engineer, industrial designer, philanthropist, and technology entrepreneur. He is a South African, American and Canadian.
