General Manager of Corporate Communication and Zonal Coordination at NCDMB, Dr. Ginah O. Ginah said the items were part of the board’s contributions to the fight against COVID-19.
“The mission is to hand over COVID-19 palliatives to the government of Rivers State. This is to assist it to fight Coronavirus.

We have a large truck filled with items and two other smaller ones. We have donated an ambulance and we are happy to help the government.”
Commissioner for Health Prof. Chike Princewill, who received the items, said:
