Barely 48 hours after Bauchi and Gombe State governments received 3 ambulances and 50,000 facemasks each from BUA Group to combat the rising cases of COVID-19 pandemic, another three fully equipped ambulances and 50,000 reusable facemasks have been donated to the Kaduna State Government.

A statement signed by Sunday Ogieva of BUA Corporate Communication, and made available to SummitNews, said this is in addition to N100million donation given by BUA to the state government at the height of the pandemic.

While handing over the donations to Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State, Aliyu Idi Hong, the Government Relations Director of BUA Group, who represented Abdul Samad Rabiu, Founder & Chairman of BUA, expressed worry over the recent rise in cases of Covid-19 especially in Africa.

Hong who commended the Kaduna government for its untiring effort in curbing the spread of the virus in the state added that BUA as an indigenous conglomerate will keep committing resources towards ensuring that citizens of Nigeria are protected against the COVID-19.

He said the fully equipped ambulances will assist in the conveyance of patients, specifically for COVID-19 and other medical emergencies

Receiving the donations, Governor Nasir El Rufai noted that BUA had earlier donated one hundred million naira to boost the COVID-19 fight in the state and thanked the BUA Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu for the kind gesture.

“I thank the management of BUA for this generous gesture. It is not the first time Abdul Samad Rabiu has assisted Kaduna State. He gave us one hundred million naira and other donations in kind. I am not only pleased to receive these donations but to hear that more help is on the way.

“This pandemic is still with us, it is still infecting people at a very rapid rate particular here in Kaduna state. So we are very concerned and every assistance we get, we appreciate.”

 BUA has so far committed over N8billion in cash donations, food stuff, infrastructure, medical supplies and equipment, amongst others since the start of the pandemic.
