Public Notice by the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning

The ministry discredited the solicitation asking Nigerians to donate to fight COVID-19, saying the news is fake.

The Ministry said it has not requested any donations from the public or received any, warning the general public that it would not be liable for any financial transaction which may have transpired between people and scammers who have created emails or social media accounts in the name of the ministry or that of the principal officers of the ministry.

The ministry, therefore, advised all members of the public to desist from transacting businesses with imposters as doing so would be at their own risk.
