The internet is currently on fire after Nigeria openly begged for ventilators on Twitter.
It all started after the founder of electronic automobile company, Tesla, Elon Musk tweeted that he was supplying ventilators to hospitals worldwide.
The tweet read: “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 me or @Tesla know,” had tweeted.
Nigeria’s Ministry of Finance had swiftly replied with its verified handle that the government was in need of between 100 – 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.”
See the tweet below.
This move has sparked a reaction on Twitter from Nigerians as many called the move embarassing criticising the handle.
Nigeria has since deleted the tweet.
