BUA Group through the BUA Foundation has donated N1bn in cash to support the efforts of the Federal Government in strengthening national response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Nigeria.


This was through the instrumentality of the Industrialist and Founder of BUA Group Alh. Abdul-Samad Rabiu.


In a statement released this evening the business leader has already placed order for an additional donation of equipment and medical supplies including testing kits and medical protective gears to 9 states in the country.


The states benefitting from the BUA Foundation intervention include Lagos, Adamawa, Abia, Akwa Ibom, Sokoto, Edo, Rivers, Kwara  and Kano.


This donation is through the Central Bank of Nigeria-led "Private Sector Coalition Committee against COVID-19"


According to Alhaji Rabiu "This donation will not only provide additional needed funds to the government and NCDC's efforts but will also serve to protect healthcare and medical workers on the frontlines of fighting the pandemic".


He said "In addition to donating the ordered medical supplies and equipment to the two most populated states in Northern and Southern Nigeria, we have also selected 7 states across all geopolitical regions in Nigeria where significant members of the BUA workforce and their families are situated to help preparedness and response to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Each of these 9 states will receive about 100,000 protective facemasks, 1000 high grade medical protection and isolation gear, 2000 protective goggles, 1000 gloves and 1000 testing kits amongst other things.2
