Nigeria’s Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning has made an appeal to tech billionaire, Elon Musk, for material support in its fight against coronavirus.

The tech billionaire tweeted on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 that Tesla, his vehicle company, was willing to ship extra approved ventilators to hospitals worldwide for free.

In his tweets:

“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.”

The Nigerian ministry replied to his tweets and said the country would appreciate between 100 to 500 ventilators from Musk.

The tweet was most likely deleted because it has attracted outrage and reactions from Nigerians who consider the appeal to be embarrassing for the country, especially in the manner it was presented.
