NNPC’s N11bn Unprecedented Rally Against Coronavirus
Nothing exemplifies the harmony and sense of corporate responsibility that now permeates the oil and gas industry as the recent announcement by the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mele Kyari, of the industry’s $30 million intervention fund to combat coronavirus.
On Friday March 27, the NNPC GMD led a delegation of the Corporation and representatives of oil companies to deliver Coronavirus testing kits, a brand-new ambulance, hospital beds and other in-patient support systems to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital.
Tagged ‘The Oil and Gas Industry Intervention Initiative on COVID-19’, it was an initiative designed to put the country ahead of the pandemic in line with the ongoing federal government’s effort. It was designed as a three-pronged covid-19 intervention initiative which targeted urgent needs in the areas of Diagnostic and Protective Kits, Logistics and In-Patient Support System and delivery of Intensive Care Facilities.
