Chairman of CIG Motors, Chief Diana Chen, has donated an ambulance, N20 million and 50,000 facemasks to Lagos State government in support of the fight against COVID-19 in the state and across the country.

Assuring of continued support, while delivering the donation, Chen said: “Now more than ever we all need to show serious concern and commitment to eliminating the threat of this virus, so that we can return to our daily lives before the outbreak.”

She also noted that the only way to defeat the pandemic is for private organisations and individuals to join hands with the government in the fight against the novel virus.
