The Federal Ministry of Finance is currently being dragged to filth by Nigerians on social media after the ministy pleaded for assistance of 100 to 500 ventilators from tech Billionaire, Elon Musk.
Elon Musk had announced his intention of shipping FDA-approved ventilators to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions in his effort to battle the global pandemic, coronavirus.

His tweet reads ;
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 let me or @Tesla know.
The official handle of the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Finance then replied the tweet stating the country needed 100 to 500 ventilators ;
Dear @elonmusk @Tesla, Federal Government of Nigeria needs support with 100-500 ventilators to assist with #Covid19 cases arising every day in Nigeria.
However, Nigerians frowned at the tweet and tagged it shameful for the Ministry to make such a demand despite the fact that many Billionaires pledged/donated funds to meet such needs.
See some reactions below ;
What of all the Billion donations by the rich, where is the money???? And also it's even more annoying when I remember we budgeted N37B for renovation of National assembly.

U can't even send a proper letter, you're replying like someone under a celeb giveaway tweet

Is this not the high time we asked where the Billions of Naira donation has been going to and what it’s being used for?

But the Ministry of Finance is under Elon Musk’s tweet begging for 500 Ventilators when they can afford thousands of it with the donations. 🤦‍♂️

Begging Elon Musk for help but will send twitter trolls to attack Nigerian entrepreneurs who employ Nigerians, create wealth and pay taxes, just because they criticised the government. Never knew this day would come.
