“We have made sure our internal processes are strengthened that such doesn’t happen again. The error is highly regrettable.”

Meanwhile, Bashir Ahmad, the personal assistant on new media to President Muhammadu Buhari, had made a similar plea in response to Musk’s tweet.

“Hello Elon, I woke up to this your tweet all over the timeline, in this period of worldwide emergency getting ventilators is pretty hard no matter how much money you get, and that’s understandable! Nigeria, my dear country is in need. Kindly send 100s here, we really need them, thanks!” it read.
