Billionaires Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote donated one billion each to help fight the deadly virus which first broke out in China.
Access Bank, GT Bank and UBA were also among the many firms that donated to support the cause.
Aside this, Dangote has joined Access Bank to provide treatment and isolation centers across Africa’s most populous nation as it braces for the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Nigeria has recorded 65 cases of the Covid-19 virus, including one fatality.
There are fears the spread could become exponential if community infections aren’t curtailed due to poor health facilities in the West African nation.
Less than 500 people have been tested and the government is tracing 4,370 persons that have made some contact with confirmed virus cases, the Ministry of Health said on Thursday.
