The total donations by players in the Oil and Gas Industry to Nigeria’s COVID-19 fund is N21billion.

NNPC GMD, Mele Kolo Kyari disclosed this on Wednesday.

He said the oil sector was obliged to support the Federal Government in its efforts to bring relief to Nigerians.

Kyari spoke on a TV programme, where he gave the update.

He said that the donations were in kind and were designed to address three key areas.

These are provision of hospital consumables, including face masks, test kits, among others.

Others are the provision of support services and facilities for patients.

There will be an upgrade of health infrastructure that will outlive the COVID-19 pandemic.
