The number of Nigerians experiencing hunger has doubled because of the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Human Rights Watch (HRW) says.
Its report - Between Hunger and the Virus - suggests that government cash transfers to the less privileged have not had the desired impact of cushioning the effects of various lockdowns on people’s livelihoods
It is based on a year’s research done with Justice and Empowerment Initiatives, a local non-governmental organisation.
It focuses mainly on the commercial hub of Lagos, where researchers spoke with more than 60 people from 13 communities in the state.
Those interviewed said the coronavirus pandemic had devastated their already fragile access to food and to making a living.
Only a small fraction of Nigerians had received government cash transfers and food handouts, according to the survey.
This underscored the need for an effective social security system, HRW said.
“Increased investment in social security should be one of the key changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic,” HRW’s Anietie Ewang said.
