Indigenous oil firms operating in the country have stated that their intervention, including food and medical supplies for the pandemic, will be delivered by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to states and the Presidential Task Force.

Specifically, Oilserv Group of Companies, stated that while the group channels large numbers of personal protective equipment (PPE), sophisticated devices for rapid medical tests, and other medical supplies to the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, it is also supplying communities across the country with tons of foodstuff to help families cope with the pains of city lockdowns imposed by the government to break the chain of infection.

The company under the sponsorship of Sir Emeka Okwuosa Foundation has already delivered over 3500 bags of rice and 8000 yam tubers to a number of communities in Rivers, Abia and Anambra States as it tours selected communities across the country with food palliatives for families impacted by the economic shutdown associated with coronavirus.
