The stimulus programme initiated by the US government under the leadership of President Donald Trump to issue out cheques to its citizens who dully pay their taxes has been enjoyed also by a Nigerian singer, Douglas Jack Agu, better known as Runtown.
9jatoday understands that the stimulus programme was meant to support United States citizens to meet some of their household needs amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease which has claimed thousands of lives worldwide.
The singer and music producer disclosed that despite been denied access to the country for two years, the stimulus programme was extended to him also.
Runtown made this known in a series of tweet on his Twitter account on Thursday, noting that the cheque was a surprise to him considering the fact that he has been banned from accessing the US.
He tweeted: ”Got Stimulus Payment from the US lol, will share with my friends here.
”Plot Twist. Been banned from the US for 2 years now.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Umar, announced a few moments ago that President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration has considered Nigerians who use N100 call credit as poor people and would ensure they enjoy the money transfer scheme.
Sadiya noted that Nigerians whose account balance is less or equal to N5,000 will also benefit from the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) scheme.
