The European Union has revealed that the €50m donated to Nigeria on Tuesday, April 14 is meant for the poor citizens of the country, PUNCH NEWS reports.

Ambassador Ketil Karlsen, the Head of European Union Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS said that the money given to Nigeria by the European Union is for the poor also for the provision of Personal Protection Equipment, kits, and to double the testing capacity for COVID-19 in the nation.

“We are mobilising €50m and another €1.2m that we already gave as part of humanitarian assistance through UNICEF,” Ketil said.

“That is why part of the €50m we provide will also be for the relief and safety net for the most vulnerable people, internally displaced persons. The poor people that depend on the informal markets, they do day-to-day work to put food on their table; the elderly, IDPs, and these, particularly, vulnerable people are the centre-stage of our intervention,” added
