Since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in Nigeria, corporate organizations and individuals have been making contributions towards containing the spread and supporting the citizens at this critical time.
This is as many companies in Nigeria have joined the newly formed Nigerian Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19 to help channel resources to combat the virus.
According to an email shared with customers of Sterling Bank PLC, and signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, Abubakar Suleiman, it reads; "We and our partners in the Bankers’ Committee are leading the effort to raise money towards the N120bn required by the government to fight the pandemic.
"To help achieve our shared goal of eradicating the virus, Sterling Bank will be contributing Two Hundred and Fifty Million Naira (N250,000,000) as part of our commitment to the coalition.
"While this will go a long way, more still needs to be done. We have come to acknowledge that this battle will require every one of us to play our part as corporate citizens and individuals -This is where we call on your support." He concluded.
With the effort made by the organized private sector so far, the Bank is canvassing for extra support in an effort to further scale the war against the pandemic in Nigeria.
Through the 'Fight COVID-19 Fund (FCF)' Campaign, the Bank is calling for what it called "a help us all defeat this pandemic for good."

More than ever, a Swahili proverb translated to English to mean; “Unity is strength, division is weakness.” aptly describes the attitude everyone must give to this.
This is a call to save your country, yourself and humanity.
