The Oyo State Government has warned state employees to be wary of con artists.
It encouraged the state’s residents, in particular civil servants and students, to disregard an online form that purportedly offered them N10,000 in help from the state government.
The governor’s chief of staff, Segun Ogunwuyi, called the claim a hoax.
In a statement made available to xandertech on Friday, Ogunwuyi, who also serves as Chairman of the 15-member Sustainable Action for Economic Recovery (SAfER), claimed that his committee was already hard at work on the Governor’s relief plans.
According to him, “the food palliative to 200,000 vulnerable households, 100,000 free healthcare insurance supports for our people, N500 million for deserving farmers under food security, another N500 million for SMEs, among other palliatives, are on course to mitigate the suffering of the masses following subsidy removal.”
