Abdulsamad Rabiu Donates ₦1 Billion To Support COVID-19 Response by aminulive: 6:53pm On Mar 26
To strengthen national response to COVID-19 in Nigeria, Industrialist and Founder of BUA Group, Abdul Samad Rabiu has announced a donation of 1 billion naira cash through the BUA Foundation and has also placed an order for an additional donation of equipment and medical supplies including testing kits and medical protective gear to 9 states in Nigeria. These medical supplies are being airfreighted and will arrive Nigeria as soon as possible. States to benefit include Lagos, Kano, Adamawa, Edo, Kwara, Rivers, Abia, Akwa-Ibom and Sokoto.

Speaking on the donation, Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of BUA Group said that it was very important for the private sector to support the government’s effort to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic whilst also adding that the N1billion donation will be done through the Central Bank of Nigeria Led “Private Sector Coalition Committee against COVID-19”.

“This donation will not only provide additional needed funds to the government and NCDC’s efforts but will also serve to protect healthcare and medical workers on the frontlines of fighting the pandemic.”

“In addition to donating the ordered medical supplies and equipment to the two most populated states in Northern and Southern Nigeria, we have also selected 7 states across all geopolitical regions in Nigeria where significant members of the BUA workforce and their families are situated to help preparedness and response to the challenges posed by the pandemic.”

“Each of these 9 states will receive about 100,000 protective facemasks, 1000 high-grade medical protection and isolation gear, 2000 protective goggles, 1000 gloves and 1000 testing kits amongst other things.” Rabiu added.

Great!
But this is not the Root Problem of the issue.

We all as Inhabitants of the Earth needs to Amend our ways! We need to Repent and Ask GOD for Mercy. We need to Repent from all the Abominations, Killings, Abortions, Immoralities, Lgbt, Wickedness and Unrighteousness !

Listen to Me, All the Researchers and scientists and WHO and all that looking for Cure Without Repentance, it is a Waste of Time! Funds being provided is Wonderful but it does not bring Permanent Solutions.. Let's not Waste our Time using a Basket to Fetch Water..


Even if a Cure comes, A Greater Plague , Virus and Pestilence with Hit the World..

We all Know the Truth that these things are beyond Humans!

My Advice for Nations, Leaders and Presidents to call their Citizens for Prayers of Repentance and Mercy to GOD Almighty..

President Buhari As the President for Nigeria should call for a Nationwide Prayer broadcast .

If possible He calls For a Nationwide Fasting and Prayer. He could call for Selected GENUIE Servants of GOD in Nigeria to lead the Prayers ( we Have them).

If we can do this, then we can invest whatever Money we wanna invest and things will Work

Great stuff.

Would have been nice if you had invested these sums in various health centres across the length and breath of this nation.

We don't always need to wait for a crisis to act.

You keep donating funds that will be embezzled by children of greed
Who can never be satisfied even if they give them the whole world

My people don't count on all these donations

It's until the international community like UN or E.U are ready to help until you can feel the impact in the grassroot level
