National leader of the APC joined other eminent Nigerians who has contributed towards the combat of the world scourge as he donates #200m as support funds on his birthday.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, yesterday, donated N200 million as part of efforts in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Tinubu, who made this known on his Twitter handle, while announcing the suspension of this year’s Bola Tinubu Colloquium, said the donation was made to the Lagos State government and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC.
The former governor said: “Today, but for COVID-19 we would, as we have done for the last 12 years, have celebrated this day with the Bola Tinubu Colloquium. We could not do so this year but by God’s grace, we will do so again.
“The circumstances this year prevented us from gathering together to celebrate my birthday but I would still like to mark the occasion.
“That is why I have chosen today to announce that I will be making a donation of N200 million to fight this deadly virus. Pursuant to this pledge, N100 million will be made available to the government of Lagos State and another N100 million to the NCDC to support their efforts in fighting the scourge of COVID-19. Together, we will overcome this disease.”
