News NFF donates face masks, hand gloves, PPE to Lagos

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in a bid to help curb the spread of the coronavirus have donated facemasks, hand gloves, and other Personal Protective Equipment to the Lagos State Government.

The NFF represented by First Vice-President Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi and Aisha Falode, an executive board member and Head of Committee, Nigeria Women’s Football League donated 3,000 pieces of facemasks, 1,000 pair of hand gloves, 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizers and 50 pieces of Personal Preventive Equipment covers.

The federation’s donation were received by the Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Ministry of Health, Mr Segun Ogboye, at the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja, Lagos.

Akinwunmi, however, praised the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his proactiveness in the wake of the pandemic, insisting the NFF donation was to support the State’s effort as they continue to fight the spread of the virus.

“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.
