New reports have it that the COVID-19 team under the government of Kano state has received a recent donation of 20 vehicles and 5 ambulances from Abdul Samad Isyaku Rabiu’s BUA Foundation.

BUA Foundation has donated 20 new vehicles and 5 ambulances to the COVID-19 team in Kano state
According to reports, the 20 brand-new vehicles and ambulances were donated to help the COVID-19 team in Kano achieve smoother operations in curbing the spread of the deadly disease in the state. It is expected that these donations should effectively solve all the logistics-related issues that might come up while the team is going about its activities.
This gesture by BUA Foundation is similar to that of one of the richest kings in Nigeria, the billionaire Ooni of Ife who donated a drone sprinkler and 3 motorized fumigators to Lagos government last week. It is absolutely obvious at this point in time that every state in Nigeria needs more support from private companies, monarchs, rich celebrities, business moguls, and all affluent individuals in this fight to eradicate the COVID-19 disease in Nigeria.

As a quick reminder, BUA Foundation was founded by Nigerian business magnate, Abdul Samad Isyaku Rabiu for philanthropic activities. Abdul Samad is a well-known business tycoon and also the chairman and founder of BUA Group – a conglomerate that concentrates on agriculture, infrastructure, and manufacturing in Nigeria.
According to Wikipedia, BUA Group produces revenue in excess of ₦975billion ($2.5billion) making Abdul Samad Rabiu rank among the richest in the world with a current net worth of $2.6 billion or ₦1 trillion.
Donations from affluent Nigerians like Abdul Samad Rabiu will go a long way in helping Kano state fight the COVID-19 pandemic as the state currently has 365 confirmed cases.
