COVID-19: LCCI donates food, medical supplies to Lagos government
The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has donated food and medical supplies to the Lagos State Government in support of its efforts at containing the spread of COVID-19.
Mrs Toki Mabogunje, President of LCCI, said in a statement on Sunday that the donation would help to mitigate the challenges of the pandemic and alleviate the economic hardship of the less-privilege in the state.
She said the supplies, inclusive of bags of rice, several cartons of noodles and alcohol-based hand sanitizers, were received on behalf of the Gov. Babajide Sanwoolu by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr Gboyega Soyanwo and Commissioner for Transport, Dr Frederic Oladeinde.
Mabogunje said the donation became imperative in view of the global outbreak of COVID-19 and the present challenging social, economic and public health realities.
“It has become imperative for us at LCCI as a socially responsible organisation to support the efforts of government in helping to cushion the effects of the pandemic on Lagos residents.
“We commend the combined efforts of the Federal, Lagos and other states, and their ministries and agencies, notably, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Federal Ministry of Health, for being front liners in the war against the pandemic.
“The business community will continue to support the government at all levels to subdue the ravaging pandemic,” she said.
