Nigeria Donates $2million To Sierra Leone Mudslide Victims

Nigeria has donated cash, food, medical supplies and other relief materials worth $2 million to victims of the mudslide in Sierra Leone.




A statement issued by the Special Assistant to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sarah Sanda, said the items donated include $1 million cash, as well as 315 metric tonnes of assorted food and other relief items and over 4,000 medical supplies all amounting to another $1m.


A high-level Federal Government delegation led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, made the donation yesterday in Freetown.
The delegation was received at the State House by President Ernest Bai Koroma.
Onyeama expressed sadness “on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari and the people of Nigeria for the August 14 tragedy”.


The minister added that “Nigeria would always stand by Sierra Leone”.
The minister explained that owing to the large volume of relief materials, there is the possibility of sending some by sea.


Koroma, while thanking President Muhammadu Buhari whom he referred to as a brother, noted that Buhari was “one of the first Heads of State to call and sympathise with us when the incident occurred”.

He added that Nigeria’s support to Sierra Leone was not new.
Koroma noted support provided by Nigeria during the 11 year civil war, during the Ebola epidemic and after the mudslide and flood disaster.

He expressed delight over Buhari’s return to Nigeria after a successful medical treatment in the United Kingdom.

The people of Bakassi lost their ancestral home since and are still living in classrooms. Nigeria hasn't deemed it fit to resettle them. It's to donate 2mil to another country that is a priority. So many IDPs and monies being diverted to private pockets. Nothing is being done about that. It is to donate to another country. While playing big brother, please ensure your own house is also in order

Nigerian government is so useless...They haven't helped their citizens they are busy donating $2million to another country while many hospitals, schools, roads are in a disastrous state. This country and it's so called officials are a shame and disgrace to Nigerians.

FG has done the right thing. Sierra Leone is our brother country with which we share culture & heritage.

Lots of Sierra Leonians are of Nigerian descent, same thing for several Nigerians especially Bishop Ajayi Crowther, CC Adeniyi Jones & TB Macaulay who were of Sierra Leonine nationality.
Fourah Bay college Freetown, educated our earliest educated citizens.

The whole world is raising help & inspite of our suffering citizens we can close our eyes to our brothers in distress.
