  • It is appalling that for a memo coming from a very high level of the government will contain misspelling and unnecessary capitalisation in the middle of sentences. What is the government going to do with all the money it is collecting since it is being reported that CRS does not have COVID-19, the disease caused by Coronavirus.

  • It is very wrong that the LGAs are being asked to pay $50M each without one kobo spent by the state government in their LGAs. The government should have billed them after expenditure. What will the government do with unspent amount? This is a recipe for CORRUPTION as the money will be mismanaged!!! Not a good governance practice.
