In Nigeria history overtime,during crises,both human and natural phenomenon,records have not shown government desire to dole out succor to the masses to mitigate the effects of the situation,with particular reference to the global Health emergency of COVID-19.

We had had the experience of the damaging effects of Yellow fever,Ebola scourge and others that ravaged Nigeria, that no Government in the previous dispensation has provided any form of intervention, to reduce the damaging effects on the lives of Nigerian citizens.

Aside corporate intervention to relive the economy and the production sectors of the country, Governments from independent, until the current dispensation,never thought out a plan to bring to the table the idea of bringing basic necessities of life to the downtrodden in the society,affected by the ravaging global pandemic like COVID-19,that triggered a total lock down of all movements and critical sectors of our economy.

But in the current order,the initiatives of the current administration champion by the Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Minister,Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouk had paid off to every average Nigerian homes,that saved to a great deal ,the likely Humanitarian crises that would have arise from the effects of the scourge, and the needed decisions of Government actions.

This decisions to carry out a holistic measure of distribution of essential items like rice,garri,corn,and other essentials across the country, including areas ravaged by Boko Haram insurgents,cattle rustling, banditry, kidnappings and all forms of social vices,deserve commendation to the position of self installed Civil Society Organization like Socioeconomic Rights And Accountability Projects (SERAP),  that juxtapose the expectations of the generality of the masses, both in Nigeria and world over.

The Non-Governmental Organization,prominently known for its struggle to equate the widen gap between the poor and the rich,opportune d and un-opportuned, privileged and the less privileged in the society,was overridden by mere observation,without in-depth knowledge of the generally acceptable and embraced program of distribution of palliatives, across the country by the Humanitarian Affairs Ministry.

It's decision on the generally acceptable programs of palliatives by the Humanitarian Affairs Ministry is anti people and has sent a wrong signals to average Nigerians, and the general public that, the once credible humanitarian body, had being overriden by inordinate decisions, not against the actors that ensured crises free environment during the health emergency and possible lock down,but against the masses they have used as an emblem to represent.

It's decision to approach the court was anti people,unpopular, unacceptable,needless and counter productive and a departure from the position of the people of Nigeria, who have already expressed satisfaction with the house to house,area to area,town to town,village to village,local government to local government and states to states distribution of the government palliatives to Nigerians.

This decision was already subject of discussion and encouragement from many prominent Civil Society Organizations, Corporate bodies and well meaning Nigerians to the new style and generally acceptable leadership initiatives, piloted by the Minister, Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouk in the new Ministry.

Government at all levels was excited the popular decision under the Ministry to address the possible humanitarian,food  and drought crises,that would have metamorphosed into any unforeseen development across the country.

SERAP's decision to engage the Ministry was a mere distraction and efforts in futility as notable NGO's like CALSER and CRW among many others had pat the Minister's decision and wisdom to embark on the generally acceptable and transparent program, beneficial to many ordinary Nigerians.

No doubt SERAP's campaign of calumny hidden under the guise of accountability and transparency had attracted a lot of condemnation, as well as an encouragement to a more people oriented programs by the new Ministry.

It is high time, Non-Governmental and Civil Society Groups redesign their programs that will genuinely bring on board policies and programs that will protect the welfare of ordinary Nigerians.

For Sadiya Umar-Farouk, Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management Minister,it is more accolades,for her singular efforts that addressed the one month total lock down,the current period of eased lock down, and post COVID-19 era in Nigeria.
