The Federal Government has said it was yet to receive the ventilators promised by U.S President, Donald Trump.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed assured Nigerians that once the government receives the promised equipment, it will be made public.

He said this Thursday while responding to a question on the issue during the Presidential Taskforce on covid-19 daily briefing.

The minister had earlier spoken about the efforts of the ministry to increase sensitization of the populace on the effect of the pandemic which has devastated the entire globe.

Already close to 6 million people have been infected with over 350,000 fatalities across 251 countries including Nigeria who has recorded 254 deaths in close 9,000 cases.

The U.S President had on 28th April, 2020 promised to send some ventilators to the country during his telephone conversation with President Muhammad Buhari

But a month down the lane, the Minister of Information and Culture said the lifesaving equipment was yet to be received by Nigeria.

He said, “To when the ventilators promised by President Trump will arrive. To the best of my knowledge, they have not arrived. When they do arrive it will be made known to the public.”
