Anambra Urges Residents: Don’t Pay for Palliatives



Chukwuma Soludo

The state Commissioner for Information, Paul Nwosu, issued this warning in a press statement on Tuesday.

Nwosu urged communities to stop collecting money from people for registering them to receive palliatives.

He also encouraged residents to report anyone requesting money for palliatives to law enforcement officers.

In the statement, he said, “The Anambra State Government has noticed the actions of unscrupulous individuals who collect money from people in our communities and claim to register them for the collection of palliatives.

“The government wants to make it clear that the palliatives, which will soon be distributed in Anambra State, are not for sale.

“We condemn the actions of these deceitful persons who take advantage of government policies to defraud people and make money. We urge the public and individuals who are approached to pay for such registration to refuse and immediately report the person(s) or group(s) to law enforcement agents, the President-General of their community, or the Transition Committee Chairman of their Local Government.”

“Anyone caught collecting this illegal registration fee will bear the consequences.”
