Is website link for Oyo State palliative funds real?
A notice being shared across social media claims that the Oyo State government is calling on citizens to apply for #25,000 palliative fund via a website link

According to the circulating message, interested benefitiaries were to visit the link https://slnkz.com/Oyo-palliative-ng to confirm eligibility.
Though the state governor Seyi Makinde recently announced that the state government will pay Oyo Workers 25,000 and Pensioners N15,000 for Six Months, He however made no mention of a website link.
The pseudo website redirected to one reno-coin website which didn’t load as at the time of check.
A government official explained that workers and pensioners will get the fund credited to the account numbers registered with the state government.
If at all there will be need for a website, it would be the Oyo State government website – oyostate.gov.ng
The web link for checking eligibility for the Oyo State palliative fund is FALSE.
