A Canadian based Nigerian has praised the Canadian government after they sent him $2,290 as financial support for the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Canadian government had announced back in March that Canadians who are out of work because of the Coronavirus pandemic will be eligible for up to CAN$2,000 ($1,399) a month for four months.
According to the Nigerian whose Twitter handle is @ChuksJaphet, he received a deposit of $2,000 from the Government of Canada few days ago and another additional cheque of $290 as support just yesterday.
He wrote: ‘Few days ago, we received a deposit of $2,000 from d Govt of Can , today we got another cheque of $290 as support. Meanwhile, all Nigerian Govt could say was come back home and I will bear d flight cost. Home ain’t where u were born. Home is where d leaders care abt u.’
