COVID-19: Nigerian man says he receiving $2,290 from Canadian Government’Home ain’t where you were born, Home is where the leaders care about you’

A Nigerian man based in Canada @ChuksJaphet has taken to Twitter to praise the Canadian government after they sent him $2,290 Canadian dollar as financial support during the Coronavirus pandemic.

He wrote: ‘Few days ago, we received a deposit of $2,000 from d Govt of Can , today we got another cheque of $290 as support. Meanwhile, all Nigerian Govt could say was come back home and I will bear d flight cost. Home ain’t where u were born. Home is where d leaders care abt u.’

This comes after the Canadian government announced back in March that Canadians who are out of work because of the Coronavirus pandemic will be eligible for up to CAN$2,000 ($1,399) a month for four months.
