A leading Chinese conglomerate based in Kano Lee group has donated 1.5million disposable facemasks to the federal government and its agencies as part of its support to the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
A director in the Lee Group Alhaji Ahmadu Haruna Zago presented the facemasks to the presidential task force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday.
During the presentation of the facemasks to the presidential task force, Ahmadu Zago said the motive behind the gesture is to check the spread of the deadly virus.
