Hoarding of palliatives is crime against humanity… Falana

 

A human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, has said the hoarding of COVID-19 palliatives by state governments was a crime against humanity.

Falana, who spoke on Arise TV, said, “It is almost like a crime against humanity just as some public officers have diverted money meant for providing palliatives for internally displaced persons.‎

“I mean you ask yourself, what level of stealing is this? And so, this is why we are worried that the members of the ruling class in Nigeria will have to have a rethink that there are certain areas you must not get to in looting the treasuries of the country.‎

“Again, I want to appeal here for warehouses that have not been touched. If palliatives have been stored, I want to appeal to all the state governors in Nigeria to emulate the example of the Sokoto State governor that simply, in the view of this challenge, distributed the items.

“How can a government hoard indomie? It’s intolerable. It’s provocative. Our government will have to apologise to the Nigerian people.”‎
