Just In: Dangote, Femi Otedola, Elumelu, Rabiu, others Give N1bn Each For Nigeria and Nigerians

Nigerian Billionaires have come out to show hospitality to Nigeria and indeed Nigerians over the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria.

The Coalition, namely; Aliko Dangote, Abdulsamad Rabiu of BUA Group, Femi Otedola, Tony Elumelu, Herbert Wigwe, Segun Agbaje and Jim Ovia of UBA, Access, GTB, and Zenith Banks, respectively, for contributing N1 billion each.

We have not received information about whether the money will be given to an individual Nigerian. But the money will go a long way to help to battle the dreaded coronavirus.

It is also noted that that UBA had equally donated the sum of N5 billion to Nigeria and Africa, while the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar had pledged N50 million.

According to him, First Bank is partnering with government, the UN and innovative technological firms to provide e-learning solutions to at least one million children under its ‘Keep Them Engaged, Keep Them Safe’ initiative.
