Nigerian billionaire Mike Adenuga has fulfilled his N1billion pledge to the COVID-19 relief fund to help in the fight against the dreaded coronavirus disease in Nigeria.
Media mogul, Dele Momodu made the revelation on on social media, moments after Femi Otedola, urged Adenuga to redeem his pledge.
This is coming after the Central Bank of Nigeria released the names of the individuals and corporate organization who are yet to redeem their pledges.
In the Instagram post, Momodu attached a letter addressed to Adenuga by Sterling Bank confirming the payment of N1bn.
The letter titled,
‘Confirmation of transfer to CBN account 1000014920 COVID-19 Relief Fund Account’, read in part, “As you are well aware, we made bank drafts for the total sum of N1, 000, 000, 000 (one billion naira only) on March 30, 2020 in favour of COVID-19 Relief Fund Account.
“We are pleased to confirm that we have wired the full value of the drafts N1, 000, 000, 000(one billion naira) to the beneficiary – CBN account 1000014920 COVID-19 Relief Fund Account as per your instruction in spite of the limited banking services occasioned by the pandemic.”
Adenuga also made a donation of N500m to the Lagos State Government which was handed personally to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu by the Executive Vice Chairman of Globacom, Mrs. Bella Disu.
