A tweet going round shows the Federal ministry of finance budget and planning asking for support from billionaire and owner of tesla, Elon musk. The tweet was later deleted after Nigerians lashed out at the ministry on twitter.

Elon musk tweeted

“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.”

The ministry tweeted, “Dear @Elonmusk @Tesla Federal Government of Nigeria needs support with 100 to 500 ventilators to assist with Covid19 cases rising every day in Nigeria.”
