Reno Omokri has come out to defend the Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning after the ministry jumped on Twitter to beg Tesla CEO, Elon Musk for ventilators to treat coronavirus victims in Nigeria.
Tesla had tweeted that he has ventilators to donate to hospitals worldwide for immediate use and the official Twitter account of Nigeria’s Ministry of Finance immediately tendered their request, to the disgust of some Nigerians.
Reacting to the ways people were not happy with the move, Reno revealed that he sees nothing wrong with it.
He added that no country is prepared for the virus and ventilators are the most sought material commodity on Earth right now so they were only trying to save lives with the request.
His words, “There was NOTHING wrong with what the Ministry of Finance did, by begging Elon Musk for ventilators. No nation was prepared for the novel #CoronaVirus. Ventilators are the most sought after materiel commodity on Earth. They were only trying to save lives by whatever means they had. New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo begged for ventilators on TV! It is not a disgrace to beg to save lives!”
