Just as we have seen companies like Massilia Motors that fed 1,000 homes in Lagos state and many other companies supporting the Lagos government to battle COVID-19 pandemic; Delta state government has started receiving similar support as well.
According to press reports, Dr Austin Obidi – the Chairman of Medical Related Donations for Coronavirus response in Delta state recently received a donation of facemasks and a Nissan delivery van presented by Mr Williams Eboh who is the Community & Health Liaison Manager for Midwestern Oil. Mr Williams reportedly presented this donation at the Central hospital in Asaba, on behalf of a group of oil firms operating within Delta state.
Mr Williams Eboh notably listed the 8 oil companies in Delta state that are currently supporting the government as well as donating food items to the respective communities where their companies are located during this COVID-19 pandemic. The list includes Pilla Oil, Chorus Oil, Oando Oil, Energia Oil, Platform Oil, Newcross Oil, Sun Trust, and Midwestern Oil.
This donation from the oil firms is coming after the Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa called on good-spirited individuals and corporate organizations to support the government in a collective battle against the novel COVID-19 virus in the state.
This is truly a time when corporate bodies, celebrities, and affluent individuals should show support to their respective state governments in the fight to eradicate this deadly Coronavirus disease that is currently a big threat to the nation as a whole. A recent good example of such support was shown by the rich monarch, Ooni of Ife who donated 3 motorized fumigators and a drone sprinkler to the Lagos state government.
