When will the right and overwhelming views of Nigerians form part of government decision making processes, if one may ask?

Many have, and are still wondering how the minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Farouk Umar

Majority have come to the conclusion that it is practically impossible for the ministry to achieve such a mean feat under the situation we have found ourselves.They are of the view that the palliatives claimed to have been distributed by the ministry in the course of containing the COVID-19 pandemic was a disaster; hence mooting the idea of feeding pupils who are nowhere near the schools is suspicious, uncalled for and should be stopped immediately.

How will a nation without reliable data of pupils benefit from the minister’s benevolence? There is a good reason to doubt that primary schools in Nigeria have good file records of students’ primary data such as house addresses with phone numbers of their parents and guardians.

With all that have happened so far on COVID-19 and the way and manner states and federal government woefully handled the palliatives, one tends to align with the notion that when intelligent and reasonable people in Nigeria find themselves in position of authority, they lose their shine, and grip of issues.

Well-meaning Nigerians should rise up against it and prevail on the minister to shelve the idea until such a time when it is appropriate.And if the ministry is itching to deliver on its mandates so to say, then the money should be channeled to other meaningful and convincing people-oriented projects. However, the take of majority of Nigerians is that the feeding programme should stop and it has to.

Overwhelming? You mean those on social media? Whenever you've a government that isn't ready to do anything.
