Adenuga’s donation is the highest amount so far contributed by Nigerians in the effort to ameliorate the pandemic in the country. Adenuga said he is giving N1 billion to the federal government and the other N500 million will go to Lagos state which currently has the highest number of confirmed cases. The report said Adenuga made the announcement through a letter he sent to the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on behalf of his ‘Mike Adenuga Foundation’ 

The letter quoted Adenuga as saying: “We shall in addition to this contribution actively continue our ongoing efforts to assist various bodies and institutions in the country with the supply of such essential items as sanitizers, masks, test kits, ventillators, PPEs and other necessary requirements.” In a letter to to the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, Adenuga further said: “Given its broad scope and focused thrust, we are convinced that effective execution of the well-articulated objectives of the coalition is certain to yield the type of very positive results that will stand the country in good stead in the ongoing battle to checkmate the malignant COVID-19 virus.
