Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara has commended the BUA Group for donating three ambulance buses to the Kwara State Government
A statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, on Friday in Ilorin said the donation came two months after the conglomerate donated N100 million to the state’s COVID-19 campaign.
“I am so glad that BUA has lived up to the expectation again. It is not just the buses.
“BUA recently gave us N100 million which we are very grateful for,” Ajakaye quoted the governor as saying shortly after the ambulances were handed over to him in Ilorin.
The governor said that the gradual reopening of the economy did not mean that the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic was over.
AbdulRazaq, therefore, urged the people of Kwara to adhere to all safety protocols, adding that the world now appeared to be in the middle of the health crisis.
“I want to specifically thank the Chairman of BUA, Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu, for N100 million, these ambulance buses, the hundreds of people being employed in Kwara State, and for the internally generated revenue they contribute to the state and for future prospects and investments,” he said.
The Senior General Manager of the Lafiagi Sugar Company (BUA Group), AbdulRasheed Olayiwola, while presenting the ambulances said they were meant to further campaign against the pandemic which had affected everyone.
“We are stakeholders in Kwara State and our Chairman is very particular about development.
“As a responsible corporate organization, we’re not only interested in our investment here, we are also interested in the wellbeing of Kwara people.
“We deem it fit, therefore, to support this government in its drive to fight the scourge of COVID-19,” he said.
