Presenting the items, the Executive secretary of the Group, Mr Frank Imoneme said the donation was part of their corporate social responsibility in the fight against COVID19.
While commending the PTF for the hard work so far in response to COVID19, Mr Imoneme used the opportunity to thank President Muhammadu Buhari’s led Government for the support been given to the Manufacturing sector which he said was essential to economic development.
