On Wednesday, the World Food Programme (WFP) of the United Nations (UN) revealed that, COVID-19 may cause loss of 13 million jobs in Nigeria.

WFP’s Senior Spokesman, Elisabeth Byrs, disclosed this in a statement.

Byrs said, more than $182m is needed to sustain life-saving aid to Nigeria for the next six months.

Also, she said that over 3.8 million indigen on Nigeria, most especially those in the private organization, could lose their jobs.

That index may up to 13 million if the limitation on movements continue for long.

“We are concerned by conflict-affected communities in North-East Nigeria who already face extreme hunger and who are especially vulnerable.

“They are on life-support and need assistance to survive,” Byrs said.

Byrs also disclosed that three million hopeless people in Abuja, Kano and Lagos would also get help from the WFP.
