The Ruler of Dubai has ordered 14 tonnes of medical supplies and 20 tonnes of food supplies to Nigeria and Sudan, the Dubai Media Office said on Saturday.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum “orders humanitarian aid flight to Sudan and Nigeria carrying 14 tonnes of medical supplies, 20 tonnes of food supplies,” the press office said in a tweet.
The Nigerian government is yet to confirm the reception of the supplies or the date it is expected in the country.
Al Maktoum, who is also the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, recently paid for the medical bills of a Nigerian mother, Suliyat Tijani, who was delivered of a set of quadruplets in the United Arab Emirates.
The latest gesture is likely connected with the coronavirus pandemic as the world seeks to mitigate the virus’ impact.
On August 11, the United States Government handed over 200 modern ventilators to the Nigerian government to aid the latter’s fight against the pandemic.
Meanwhile, 170 Nigerians returned from the United Arab Emirates to Nigeria on Saturday, taking the number of evacuees from the Arab nation to over 3,000 amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM)
