The Government of Oyo state has urged the residents to shun an online platform asking them to fill a purported application form to benefit from its N10,000 palliative.
The Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Segun Ogunwuyi, who debunked the online report, in a statement on Friday in Ibadan, described it as fake news.
Ogunwuyi who doubles as the chairman of the 15-man Sustainable Action for Economic Recovery (SAfER), warned the general public, especially civil servants and students to disregard the call from the online platform.
He said his committee was already working hard on the state government’s relief packages in the wake of subsidy removal.
While adding that there were various palliative measures that would mitigate the sufferings of the masses such as food palliative to 200,000 vulnerable households.
According to him, the packages include 100,000 free healthcare insurance support and N500 million for deserving farmers under food security, among others.
Ogunwumi cautioned people of the state not to fall victim to the fake news that asked them to submit their personal information online to be eligible for the purported N10,000 cash support.
