The Ekiti State Government has distanced itself from an online advertisement requesting members of the public to apply for N5 billion Federal Government palliative funds.

The state government in a press release on Thursday, 24th August, 2023 cautioned the public that the advertisement did not emanate from the government.

The statement signed by the state commissioner for information,Taiwo Olatunbosun 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 N5 billion Federal Government palliative funds”

“The government 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.” the statement concluded.
