“I call on rich and well-to-do Nigerian People, multinationals, oil companies, and corporate Nigeria to financially support the government to curb this menace.

“This is a test of their corporate social responsibility to Nigeria. I will take the lead in this regard from the level of my native state, Kogi.

“Nigerian People shouldn’t see the fight against coronavirus as a ‘government thing’. It is not about the government, and it is about humanity.

“Public health affects national development, and it should not be politicised.”
