The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has donated N20 million to the Osun State government to aid the fight against coronavirus in the State.
Earlier in the week, Government had named the clergy as a member of its 21-man Food and Relief Committee saddled with the responsibility of fashioning out how to cushion the effect of the lockdown on its citizens.
According to a Facebook post on his official Facebook page, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, noted that the donation was a token to support the State Government in the fight against COVID-19.
He added: “We have been called to be salt and light to the earth, and the first place that should benefit from the sweetness and illumination is home, this is why I’m supporting @osunstategovt in the fight against COVID-19 with the sum of 20 Million Naira.
“I know this might not fully cater for all areas but this is my token. We will continue to support as many people as we can this period with foodstuff, safety gears, sanitisers and whatever is essential through our CSR arm”, he added.
Innocent Tuface Idibia, popularly known as 2Baba, will on April 12 hold an e-concert in a bid to rally support and unify Nigerians against the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Nigeria.
The e-concert, to be live streamed on Tuface’s social media handles (@official2baba) and that of Trophy Extra Special Stout (@trophystout), a brand of International Breweries Plc, will create an extra special moment for people to be entertained with the live performances from the African Queen crooner while they stay at home this period.
In addition, Trophy Extra Special Stout together with 2Baba will make a N10m donation to support initiatives combating COVID-19.
Bamise Oyegbami, Trophy’s Marketing Manager, said “we have decided to support Tuface in this quest because as a brand, we acknowledge the importance of this initiative; hence we are fully behind it”.
During the e-concert, viewers will have the opportunity to engage and interact with 2Baba online and also stand a chance of winning freebies which can be helpful to people whose livelihood may have been impacted by the stay at home situation.
