Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) have donated two PCR machines to the River state Government to aide the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19) spread in the State.
This is also coming even as the state Governor Nyesom Wike stated that it was the first time the oil major earned his commendation.
The SPDC gesture comes just as a sister company, the Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG) advanced its N1 billion interventions fund towards the fight over the pandemic in the state with the delivery of a 10-bed Holding Centre, to the Bonny Zonal Hospital.
While receiving the donation from SPDC, in Port Harcourt, Wike said: “This is the first time I am going to commend you. Thank you for supporting the State Government in the fight against coronavirus.
“We are not fighting anyone, but it must be stated that this is not from the Federal Government.”
