The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has deny the rumor being spread around that the agency has spend over 1 billion Naira on SMS in order to sensitize the public on the novel coronavirus.



The agency made this known through a tweet on her twitter handle.

The News that NCDC has spent one Billion in sending text messages to Nigerians is FAKE! The center via its verified twitter handle has stated as follows "The headline claiming that NCDC has spent N1 billion on SMS to Nigerians is FALSE

While communication through SMS is a key part of our #COVID19 response strategy, this has been largely provided as in-kind support by @AirtelNigeria @MTNNG @GloWorld

#TakeResponsibility"

However, Naijacrawl beseeches the general public to desist in spreading fake news


During this pandemic let's do all to support NCDC and healthcare workers who are risking their lives and the well-being of the families to rid the nation of Covid 19.


Avoid spreading fake and unverified news on the pandemic, stay safe, keep washing your hands , maintain a safe social distance & hygiene. In the end we will overcome!
