DONATE TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR NOT TO THE GOVERNMENT

The billions of naira donated to the federal government by companies and private individuals should rather be donated to the private sector, to private research Laboratories, to hospitals and directly to the poor. This will enhance local research into this Virus on testing, treatment and prevention.
The Federal government alone cannot handle this thing for obvious reasons of unnecessary bureaucracy and self interest.
International agencies like WHO have proved unreliable and confused, we need to wake up and solve this problem locally.
We trust private Schools for our children, private Hospitals for our sick needs, private Airlines when we fly, private Laboratories for our tests, this is because they are more efficient than the government. We need to trust the private sector and put money there.
The solution to this problem in Nigeria is with the private sector.
