Private Sector Initiative By Dangote, Otedola Others Raise Over N50bn To Help Nigerians During The COVID-19 Pandemic

The private sector-driven initiative, CACOVID, has devoted N23 billion to feed 10 million Nigerians.
According to Aliko Dangote, in the next few days, food items will reach 1.67 million households across the wards of the 774 local government areas to reduce the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
The private sector-driven initiative, led by the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele, is working on the best methods to distribute the food items (as shown in the video below).

Apart from erecting isolation and treatment centres across the country, this first phase of providing food items is paramount.

Apart from Africa's richest man, the initiative is supported by various bank CEO's and other well meaning Nigerians like Femi Otedola, Governor Seyi Makinde and more.
