Over 792.1 million naira has been paid into the Eradication Support Account to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, revealed this during the daily briefing by members of the PTF on Friday.

The SGF said: “I am pleased to report that the Office of the Accountant General has published details of inflow into the Federal Government COVID-19 Eradication Support Account.


“As of 14th May 2020, the sum of 792, 121, 613. 89 naira has been credited into the TSA account from the various E-country sources”.

He explained that the disclosure was predicated on the fact that the committee had promised to make all-cash donations public and in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration on accountability and transparency.
