President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the European Union for donating the sum of N21 billion (€50 million) to support Nigeria’s efforts at controlling the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The President praised the European body yesterday when he received a delegation to the country, led by Ambassador Ketil Karlsen, at the Aso Villa in Abuja.
He said the donation would go a long way in supporting Nigeria’s efforts at controlling and containing coronavirus to prevent community spread, as well as revitalize the national healthcare systems.
President Buhari used the occasion to condole with EU-member countries and families who lost their loved ones as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
