  1. On lockdown just like that? Does Buhari have something else in place for folks in terms of income, food and water? Over here in the states, a lot of us are working from home and trump/senate house passed a bill on sending checks to help citizens and small business owners. God help Nigeria.

    1. Which country flag is that on his left?

    2. All that money is to stimulate the economy.
      Just be ready to pay back later.

    3. I am not going to get a dime from the Government but it’s all good and dandy.

    4. It will take another three weeks before that money will start showing up in people’s accounts if, you used direct deposit when you filed taxes in 2018 or 2019.
      If they sent a paper check the last two filings, it will take longer.
      If you made 99.000 as a single person and filed as a single person, you don’t get a dime. Married and filing jointly with income over 138 thousand, you don’t get a dime. So, if you made too much money and out of work now, you are on your own.

    5. 0945, you must have made too much money
      That’s why.

  2. Delta is locking down too from Wednesday...

  3. He should send all Nigerians money

  4. Buba you didn't send money to people's account.
