“The circumstances this year prevent us from gathering together to celebrate my birthday but I would still like to mark the occasion.”
“That is why I have chosen today to announce that I will be making a donation of N200m to fight this deadly virus. Pursuant to this pledge, N100m will be made available to the government of Lagos State and another N100m to the NCDC to support their efforts in fighting COVID-19.”
