Oluwatoni explained that her writing was borne out of the problems that Nigeria experienced during the pandemic, the looting of palliatives donated by the private sector, and the desire to draw attention to some of the problems confronting Nigerians. She said she did extensive research on all reliable platforms to put the piece together, which centered mainly on how low-income and poor Nigerians have been badly affected by COVID-19 policies.
