Atiku Pledges N50m To Combat Coronavirus

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has pledged N50 million to a coronavirus relief fund for Nigerians that have contracted the dreaded virus.

Atiku made this known in a statement he personally issued on Wednesday.

He said the donation is being made on his behalf by Priam Group to form part of the stimulus package the federal government should create for Nigerians.

He said: “I commend all all individuals and corporate organisations who have one way or the other provided some form of relief for the Nigerian people. I further call on more more corporations and individuals with capacity, to assist the public in these trying times.

“To this end, Priam Group pledges N50 million on my behalf as my humble contribution to a relief Fund that will form part of the stimulus package.”

Concise News reports that one of the sons of the former vice-president is currently receiving treatment in Abuja after testing positive for the virus.
