Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19, CACOVID has come out to say that it remains committed to making sure that no coronavirus patient’s life is lost in Nigeria as a result of lack of oxygen.

The Managing Director and CEO of Aliko Dangote Foundation, Zouera Youssoufou recently revealed this at a media briefing on the latest donations.

According to her, the coalition currently supplies Federal Government with oxygen for management of critical COVID-19 patients at the Isolation centres across the country, and the goodwill will surely continue.

She added that CACOVID is using this support to move the country forward, and the company also sees it as a way of giving back.

Her words, “As you all know, we are experiencing a severe oxygen supply problem in the country with this 2nd wave. CACOVID, through one of our founding members, Mr. Raj Gupta of African Industries Group immediately stepped up and has been providing oxygen in Abuja, mainly to the National Hospital and Gwagwalada Specialist Hospital in FCT.”

“In addition to the oxygen that has been provided by African Industries Group, CACOVID has also purchased over 1,000 cylinders to be distributed to the states that have the most need”

β€œWe have been in Nigeria for 50 years and this year marks our 50th anniversary. We manufacture Oxygen as one of our steel making process but when we noticed COVID-19 patients are dying of Oxygen, we have to step in, through CACOVID.”

“As a member of CACOVID, this is our support in moving the country forward and we see this as a humanitarian crisis and as a responsible company, we have to step in, to ensure that no-one died due to lack of Oxygen. If it takes us to temporarily stop our steel production, we will happily do that for our people to live and be healthy in Nigeria.”
