NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has condemned the hoarding of COVID-19 palliatives by some state governments in the country.

Berating the action of the state government to hoard the palliatives rather than distribute it, the NLC in a statement urged the Nigerian government to investigate the conduct of those hoarding the palliatives.

The statement read in part, “while we condemn the ensuing mass looting of both the covid-19 palliatives and non-COVID-19 palliative materials, we equally deplore the conduct of some government officials who stored away relief materials that should have been distributed to the masses of our people at their very trying times of need.

In reaction to the condemnation that had followed the sudden discovery of palliatives, the Nigeria governors’ forum defended itself, saying the recent cache of palliatives discovered by citizens in warehouses across the country were kept in anticipation of a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
