If you have not forgotten, in recent years, this Nigerian government has released its budget through NIRSAL bank through the provision of Non-interest tcf, which provides loans from 500,000 upwards. People have already received this grant, and some are still receiving loans from NIRSAL.
The global pandemic has led to unprecedented disruptions to global supply chains, sharp drop in global crude oil prices, turmoil in global stock and financial markets, massive cancellation of sporting and entertainment events, lockdown of large swaths movements of persons in many countries, and intercontinental travel bans/restrictions across critical air routes across the world.
These outcomes have had severe consequences on households’ livelihoods and business activities, resulting from a drop in global demand, declined consumer confidence, and a slowdown in production.
