The Ekiti State Government has on Thursday declared that it has not requested its residents to apply for the Federal Government provided palliative in the state.
It made this announcement through a press release signed and issued by the Commissioner for Information, Taiwo Olatunbosun, on Thursday.
The release read, “It has come to the notice of the Government of Ekiti State that some fraudsters masquerading as agents of the State have placed advertisements in some online platforms asking unsuspecting members of the public to apply for the N5b Federal Government palliative funds.
“The Ekiti State Government hereby unequivocally disowns all online and any other form of advertisements requesting for applications to benefit from the palliative funds.
“The good people of the State are therefore advised to ignore all unauthorized advertisements purportedly placed on behalf of the State Government.
“The Government has its official channels of communicating its decisions to the Public. Members of the public are also urged to contact the Office of the State Commissioner for information for clarifications and enquiries.”
