The German Mission in Nigeria has pledged €5.5m to the Nigeria Humanitarian Fund, says the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria, The PUNCH reports.
The donation, according to an online currency converter, Oanda, as of 2pm on Thursday, exchanged for N2.2bn.
This is coming as the West-African country grapples with the attendant effects of economic shocks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic which has paralysed most activities in the country while infecting over 170 people with two deaths.

The PUNCH reports that the Federal Government’s 14-day lockdown is on in top cities including Abuja and Lagos as part of efforts to curb the community transmission of the pandemic.
There have been cries by the populace for the government to cushion the effect of the lockdown by providing relief materials including foodstuffs and other essentials.
The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria announcing on its Twitter handle, @ OCHANigeria, said the donation by Germany would help vulnerable persons in Nigeria have access to potable water, food and shelter amidst the crisis.

UNOCHA Nigeria tweeted, “Germany pledges €5.5m to the Nigeria Humanitarian Fund. It’s more critical than ever for vulnerable people to have access to clean water, food & shelter. This will enable partners to continue delivering life-saving aid amidst COVID-19.”

There own is just how to collect and collect from international countries , still with all the wealth Nigeria as a country have always want to receive from international countries. At the end they are not going to use the money for is purpose, that's is why European don't have respect for Africa, always depend on them and that's is why they too decide for Africa leaders.
