Those who believed N700 billion got burnt in the Treasure house or that FG should share donated funds, please here’s what Mr Dangote has to say about the monies donated:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted modern society, affecting our collective health and well-being. As a global citizen and business leader, I took the COVID-19 test and the result came back NEGATIVE.
CACOVID (Coalition Against COVID-19) is an initiative that I am leading with other private sector leaders, and our common goal is to support ongoing Government initiatives with our resources in the fight against Covid-19.
We are in this together and I am optimistic we will overcome.”
- Aliko Dangote
“As explained above, CACOVID is a private sector initiative to support Government. They will not hand any money over to any government. Instead, they will spend the money (their money) to build, equip, and upgrade healthcare facilities in line with the needs of Federal and State Governments.
“Consequently, the federal government has given them a list of needed equipment and commodities.
Therefore, the question of asking that donations be used to provide palliative cannot arise.”
