The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion has donated medical consumables worth N10 million to the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, as part of its contribution to the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, who is also the Chairman of the PTF, while receiving the materials at his office in Abuja on Monday, stated that the donation came at the right time and would go a long way in assisting medical personnel in the fight against the pandemic.
SGF, while commending the efforts of the Church in the provision of palliatives to both its members and others in this period, promised to put in good use the donations made by the Church.
Mustapha noted that the Anglican Communion was among the first to advise its members to fully obey all instructions of the Federal Government with regard to congregational meetings, as well as the stay at home order.
Earlier in his remarks, the Primate of the Church, Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba, said the Church is giving support to both the federal and state governments in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
He added that the response of the Church to COVID-19 will be in spiritual, physical and material support.
The Primate said while the Church will intensify prayers on behalf of the country to ensure the healing of the land, it had also directed all the Bishops in the Dioceses and Parishes to build food banks for distribution of food to indigent people.
