A well-known Nigerian academic, Ndubuisi Ekekwe, has spoken about the need for African billionaires and mega churches to rise up to fight coronavirus on the continent.
The Nigerian voiced his opinion as he praised Tony Elumelu of UBA for donating the huge sum of $14 million (N5,138,000,000) to help combat the pandemic in Africa.
Ndubuisi, therefore, said that if anyone has money, “now is the time” to show it to their national community as the world struggles against the unprecedented virus.
He asked the affluent among the people to “touch us with your money and resources”, as he jokingly added that he will write and thank them as teachers are wont to do.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that popular Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye, made a laudable charitable gesture as he donated dozens of hand sanitizers and Vitamin C to people in Kogi state.
In a short video he made on his Facebook page on Friday, March 27, he said that he is giving out the materials without any religious or political bias.

"So there is no PDP, no APC, it's for everybody. God will heal our land in Jesus name," he said.
In the same video, cartons of sanitizers and other materials could be spotted as he instructed some men on the manner of distribution.
