Toyota (Nigeria) Limited (TNL), the sole distributor of Toyota Motor Corporation in Nigeria and its foremost dealer – Elizade Nigeria Limited (ENL) have donated three units of ambulances to the Lagos State Government to support the government in its fight to eradicate the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in the state. Lagos, which is Nigeria’s business capital is sadly the epicenter in the country.
The Chairman TNL and Founder ENL, Chief Michael Ade-Ojo said, “Covid-19 is a vicious virus that is presently ravaging people all over the world. Everything humanly possible must be done to quickly contain the pandemic. The government needs the support of all well-meaning Nigerians and corporate organisations to fight the evil scourge and all hands must be on deck.”
He added, “TNL and ENL will continue to support the government in any endeavour that will positively impact humanity”. Also speaking, the Managing Director of Toyota (Nigeria) Limited, Mr. Kunle Ade-Ojo further stated that, “the gesture is in recognition and commendation of the continuous effort of the Governor, His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his indefatigable team to contain the spread of the virus.” According to him, Lagosians and Nigerians can only support the efforts of the government by abiding by the guidelines provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
While receiving the three ambulances from the Public Relations Team Lead of Toyota (Nigeria) Limited Mrs. Bukki Ogunnusi, the First Lady of the State, Dr. (Mrs.) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu ably supported by the Chief of Staff of the State, Mr. Tayo Ayinde and other Senior Officials of the State, expressed appreciation for the timely gesture.
