The Presidency has denied claims that it approved a N30,000 palliative to every Ni­gerian who has a verified Bank Verification Number (BVN).

Early Saturday morning, fake news filtered into the air, alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved a stimulus package of N30,000 to Nigerians as a result of the Coronavirus pan­demic in the country.

The statement, which went viral, was not signed, but at­tributed to the Special Advis­er to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

However, Adesina, while debunking the information in his witter handle, said, “Fake news peddlers have concoct­ed a statement, purportedly issued by me, saying FG will pay N30,000 to each Nigerian with BVN, to help them stock up before an impending na­tional lockdown. Not me, the so called statement is hereby disclaimed.”
