Tony Elumelu, Others Donate N60b At Presidential Fund-Raising Dinner

Chairman of Heirs Holdings and founder of Tony Elumelu Foundation, Mr. Tony Elumelu, has donated N2.5bn to communities affected by terrorism in the country at the Presidential fund-raising dinner held on Thursday in Abuja.

The president while addressing the audience encouraged them to give back to the society, explaining that terror victims need the funds at the moment.

“Do not forget the victims of terror and donate generously with cheques, cash, online with credit cards, or via your mobile phone. Every widow’s mite will be appreciated. We cannot deviate from the spirit of good neighbourliness that defines us as Nigerians. The terrorists have succeeded in uniting us as they are enemies of all,” he said.

Public and private sector leaders in attendance made a total donation of N60bn.
