The Nigeria Football Federation on Monday donated thousands of facemasks, hand gloves, sanitisers and Personal Preventive Equipment to the Lagos State Government as part of efforts to curb the coronavirus pandemic.
The NFF donation was presented to the Lagos State Government by the federation’s 1st vice president, Seyi Akinwunmi, supported by NFF Executive Board member and Head of Committee, Nigeria Women’s Football League, Aisha Falode.
The donation of 3,000 pieces of facemasks, 1,000 pair of hand gloves, 1,000 bottles of hand sanitisers and 50 pieces of Personal Preventive Equipment covers were received by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Lagos State, Segun Ogboye, at the Alausa secretariat, Ikeja, Lagos.
Akinwunmi said going by the immeasurable contributions of the state in nipping the deadly pandemic in the bud, the NFF was compelled to support the state government’s excellent programmes, which he said had safeguarded the lives of people living in the state.
“If the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had not been proactive in tackling the spread of the coronavirus, the cases in Nigeria would have been catastrophic, compared to the controlled situation in the country today.
“Our donation is in support and solidarity with the state government for the wonderful job done so far, to save the lives of Lagos residents and by extension, Nigerians. We will not hesitate to do more if the need arises,” Akinwunmi said.
