This renovated and equipped building is going to serve as an isolation centre for the management of people who are infected with the coronavirus disease.

In a Facebook post, the First Lady made it known that it is part of her efforts and commitment to complement government efforts in the response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

“In addition to this, I also donated some Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and some essential dr*ugs to Nasarawa state government, for the benefit of the good people of the state.

The items included hand sanitizers, surgical face mask, N95 respirator masks, multivitamins, antimalarials, analgesics, intravenous fluids, and oral antibiotics.

Food items were also donated as palliatives to the health care workers,” she stated.

Last month, Hajiya Aisha Buhari donated food item, which includes bags of rice, to religious groups at the peak of the total lockdown across the country.

The donation was made on Monday and Tuesday, May 4 and 5 through the First Lady's representative, Dr Hajo Sani, who is also the senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on women affairs.

Around the same period, Hajiya Aisha Buhari praised her predecessor, Mrs Patience Jonathan, for her contributions towards the fight against the novel coronavirus.

The first lady disclosed in a statement on Thursday, April 23 that the former first lady willingly released her building to be used as a Covid-19 isolation centre temporarily.

She also listed donated items as hospital beds, bedsheets, PPEs and medications.

Meanwhile, as Nigeria prepares for life after the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has assured citizens that it will soon roll out additional stimulus packages for Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) across the country.

This was disclosed by the special assistant to the president on MSME in the office of the vice president, Tola Johnson.
