Oluyemi said the board acknowledged that the corporation was not only consistent with its Corporate Social Responsibility, (CSR) but that the proceeds would be utilised in the provision of equipment and medical facilities in the country.

He recalled that the Bankers Committee led by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at its emergency tele-conference call meeting held on March 30 announced that the committee and the private sector had set up an account at the CBN under the auspices of the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19.

“The fund receives contributions from individuals as well as corporate organisations to complement the efforts of the Federal Government as it strives to contain the spread of the pandemic in Nigeria,”he said.
