A letter making this pledge was made available to the media whereby the billionaire said: “We shall in addition to this contribution actively continue our ongoing efforts to assist various bodies and institutions in the country with the supply of such essential items as sanitizers, masks, test kits, ventillators, PPEs and other necessary requirements.”
In a letter to to the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, Adenuga further said: “Given its broad scope and focused thrust, we are convinced that effective execution of the well-articulated objectives of the coalition is certain to yield the type of very positive results that will stand the country in good stead in the ongoing battle to checkmate the malignant COVID-19 virus.
“We are towards this end pleased to attach a bank cheque in the sum of one billion naira (N1, 000, 000, 000) as our modest initial contribution to the success of this welcome initiative.”
