'Give Nigerians Money To Stay At Home' Ruth Kadiri Begs FG
Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Ruth Kadiri-Ezerika, has taken to social media to plead with the federal government to aid Nigerians financially so as to make Nigerians stay at home as the world continues to fight the pandemic.
The actress said this in an Instagram video where she spoke about the relationship between hunger and the virus and how the two are working together to claim lives.
According to her, the government should send N5,000 to every Nigerian as they really need it during this trying times. She said: “I beg you, we know Nigeria is able. You all brought up the policy of BVN, we all have all our BVN, I have more than five accounts but they all operate on that one BVN.”
“Please even if it is N5000 monthly , put it in our accounts, I promise you we will stay at home. Even if it is N5000. People are not working anymore to be rich, at this point, people are working to survive. And you’ll be amazed what N5000 can do in the life of somebody and then family members.
I don’t want you to be selfish to say “we are giving one family member N5000. No!!! We all have our account numbers, we are all Nigerians. If you are able to do this thing for us in this time ,this era, you have no idea how much we are going to appreciate you, how much we are going to sing your praises, how much we are going to tell the world that you are the best government that Nigeria has ever had.”
She added:” I promise you, I beg you, don’t say you are giving the poor, No!! At this point, every single person needs, because nobody is working anymore, sources of income have closed. Other countries are taking care of their own, please take care of us.
Look into our BVN numbers, put N5000 there monthly for each and every person. When you tell us Nigeria is on lockdown, we will sit at home. Thank you”. She concluded.
