*Covid-19: Flour Mills of Nigeria intervenes, distributes 35,000 test kits to Kano, Lagos, 13 others. Orders 25,000 more*


The Flour Mills of Nigeria Group (FMN) has distributed 35,000 testing kits to Kano, Lagos and other states to help the country’s fight against the novel coronavirus.

The distribution, which was done through the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), was targeted at states with the most need of the kits.

It’s good to appreciate companies that are truly impacting lives without unnecessary fanfare. See here how Flour Mills Nigeria is making a difference under the radar by donating 35,000 testing kits to increase Nigeria’s testing capacity and they have even ordered 25,000 more.

They have also donated globally scarce ventilators plus thousands of protective equipment for medical staff across the country. This is an impressive show of social responsibility

According to a breakdown of distribution, the Federal Capital Territory got 13,000 test kits delivered to NCDC’s National Reference Laboratory in Gaduwa and its Defence Reference Laboratory.

A total of 10,000 kits were delivered to Lagos state: 3,000 to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, 3,000 to 54 Gene Research, 2,000 to the Nigerian Institute for Medical Research and 2,000 to the Lagos Biobank Laboratory.

In Kano, 5,000 kits were distributed to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital and the Bayero University Kano.

The state was also supported with a ‘Lab in A Box’ which is used for rapid testing in remote locations.

For Kaduna state, 1,500 kits were delivered to the DNA Laboratory while the Irrua Teaching Hospital in Edo got 1,000 test kits.

Oyo State’s University College Hospital Virology Laboratory got 2,000 kits while the African Centre for Genomics of Infectious Diseases at the Redeemers University in Osun state got 1,000 kits.

According to Olusanya, the Group’s Chief Operating Officer, 1.5m dollars equipment and distribution of kits, the company’s Chairman, Mr John Coumantaros had also redeemed his pledge of N1 billion to the CBN led Private sector coalition against COVID-19; CACOVID.

Hope Government is taking note of all these companies and hopefully give them waivers when this COVID-19 ends. They have really been supportive this period!

What is the essence of the donations since poor masses are suffering. Take a look at the price of foodstuffs in the market.
A kilo of sugar from 550 to 1600
A kilo of baking milk from 700 to 2500
They seems to be investing in the covid 19 case.
It is quite unfortunate that consumers rights are not protected in my nation

A woman in my street has been suspected to be positive to Kovid-19.She is a nurse in one of the hospitals in Eti-Osa LGA. She goes to work and come back everyday.She's been sick for a while and yesterday we saw some people suspected to be NCDC officials(based on their dressing PPE) came and took her away..She has a husband but no children.......
.
.
.
The whole street is in disarray because we expected them to pick everyone in that compound expecially the husband for quarantining....
.
.
we are doing our part by stopping people from going to that compound and also stopping the children in that compound from coming to play with children in ours......
.
. Please help pass this message till it gets to the appropriate Authority.....

This is a face me I face you area and one can imagine how bloody it could look if it goes out of hand.... The Area is Market street. Ojo Local Govt Lagos off police corner bustop

Why are there no donations to Rivers state.
Even the multi national oil company's, private companies, none have made any donation to Rivers state govt.

Shame on wike bad leadership

cool



Ganduje still aint getting any kobo from anybody... the guys reputation is badly battered, instead of donating money to him, people are buying Medical and Humanitarian products and donating it to kano instead, while Lagos is getting both money and physical item donation

Wike would now understand that no Company likes a bully as a Governor , harassing investors, locking up business premesis and forcing expatraites to relocate, One kobo nobody is donating to the loud thug
