This was made known in a teleconference with selected journalists, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard, stated that, the country has put in place mechanisms to monitor and ensure judicious utilisation of the financial aid provided to help Nigeria in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that since the COVID-19 crisis started, the US has committed $237m to support Africa’s COVID-19 response with the global interventions amounting to $2.4bn.

While assuring that the US government has put in place strict monitoring mechanism and surveillance to block diversion of the funds, just like other interventions, she also said there was nothing unusual with the current evacuation of American citizens in Nigeria, noting that many of them only wanted to reunite with their families having exhausted their short stay in Nigeria.
