The coronavirus is an ongoing global pandemic, which is responsible for the death of over 25,000, with over 550,000 people also reported to have been infected by the virus.
Nigeria is currently battling to contain the spread of the virus that has so far claimed 1 life in the country. State governments have shut down activities and encouraged residents to self-isolate.
Nigerian billionaires and top firms have been donating to fund the fight against the virus, and Otedola just recently made his commitment known on social media. He wrote;
“I will be donating 1 billion naira towards the eradication of COVID-19 across Nigeria.”
“We must all do what we can to flatten the curve.”
