According to him, the money is in a separate account and has nothing to do with the Federal Government.

Aliyu said: ‘The private sector has a separate fund which is run through the Coalition Against Coronavirus Disease.

“That’s where you get most of the announcements that this person has given a billion and this is a separate account. It has nothing to do with the government and the money will not come to the government

We appreciate the help of the private sector in helping us and they will be providing us with commodities but the money they are currently collecting will not come to the government.

“It is a separate bank account”
