The Nigerian government have finally apologized to Nigerians for begging for ventilators on social media.
There were outrage from Nigerians earlier today following the request made from the official Twitter handle Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning for a donation of ventilators from Tesla founder, Elon Musk.
However, the special adviser to the minister, on media and communications, Yunusa Tanko Abdullahi, has since apologized, saying that the request which came in form of a tweet was unauthorised and as such has since been brought down.
Abdullahi, in a apologetic tone said: “The fact of the post is regrettable because of which it is brought down. We have made sure our internal processes are strengthened that such doesn’t happen again. The error is highly regrettable.”
