Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported a well-known Nigerian academic, Ndubuisi Ekekwe spoke 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.
