“Mama Africa” Yemi Alade has shared an open letter to the Nigerian government over the poor treatment of citizens during the lockdown necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic.
Yemi expressed via her Twitter page where she reacted to the video of patients isolated at an infectious disease center in Gombe complaining about their poor treatment.
According to the clip, the patients have not received any treatment during their isolation of two weeks.
Some patients said that they did not even see any doctor and even had to buy their own drugs to treat themselves.
CANDIID ONLINE recalls that not long ago the award-winning singer made an open request to the Lagos state government to give an account of how the N10 billion COVID19 relief fund received from the Federal government has been expended so far.
Yemi via her Twitter handle has asked the state government how the fund has been allocated.
According to her, the daily feeding of residents of the state needs to be looked into as this is the main reason many have refused to stay at home despite the lockdown.
She also tasked the state governor to use the BVN of residents of the state to credit their accounts with funds.
Yemi reacted to the sad incident with a letter to the Nigerian government.
The Effizzy Music frontliner wrote that the government wants to rescue people Alfie is yet to save itself. As a concerned citizen, Yemi said its time to rebuild.
She wrote: “To whom it may concern, Dear Government, You want to rescue us, but you haven’t rescued yourself. Change must start from you (me).
“Just treat us exactly how you want to be treated. It’s time to rebuild. A concerned citizen Yemi Alade.”
