Nigerians on twitter have had words after the official account of The Ministry of Finance was seen requesting free ventilators from US Billionaire Elon Musk.
The Tesla boss had announced that he had access to a couple of ventilators and was willing to give it out to those who needed it and started to get comments from those who did.
He had tweeted:
We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or @Tesla know.
Nigerians had been shocked to find the ministry under the same tweet asking for aids to help battle the Coronavirus.
The ministry had tweeted:
Dear @elonmusk @Tesla Federal Government of Nigeria needs support with 100-500 ventilators to assist with #Covid19 cases arising every day in Nigeria.
