As claimed by several reports, supportgrants is giving Nigeria youths N20,000 monthly for the next 12 months to help support individuals as a result of the effect of Covid-19.
Supportsgrants claims to be a private sector initiative founded in 2020 as a result of the effect of Covid-19 on Nigerians and Africans causing millions to slide into poverty due to loss of jobs, bankruptcy, loss of investment, high rate of inflation, and paucity of government revenue.
According to reports;
"This Support Grants Nigeria 2021 scheme was initiated by a group of Africans based in Europe for over the past 20 years as a way of giving back to the continent and driving a positive impact on citizens. It is a not-for-profit project that is designed to pave way for other well-meaning citizens to be part of.
"With over a trillion naira spent by the Nigerian government in the past months to provide relief to its citizens including Covid-19 Relief Fund, palliatives, Survival grant, Agricultural Micro Small Medium Enterprises (AGMESIS) etc. yet a greater number of people are yet to benefit from any."
However, there have been several questions as regards the legitimacy of the platform given that applicants will be required to download an orientation manual worth N2, 000 upon sign-up.
