Nigeria In One Minute

Finally, NEMA shares expired Chinese rice to staff

After many months of controversy over the inexplicable non-disbursement of rice donated by the Chinese Government to internally displaced persons in Nigeria, the National Emergency Management Agency has finally distributed the expired rice and other condiments to its workers.

The donation, which took ace at the weekend and spans till Monday morning, is to meant to portray the embattled NEMA leadership as caring and responsive to the staff who need financial and material support at the yuletide.

But Vanguard learnt that the diversion of the foodstuff which was primarily given by the Chinese government for IDPs in Nigeria’s Northeast, is likely to be met with dire consequences from the House of Representatives which had already indicted the NEMA, Mustapha Maihaja, for poor leadership leading to the wastage of the aid given by China.
