Massilia Motors, sole distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in Nigeria, has provided food items to 1,000 homes in Ijora, a suburb of Lagos State, where the company’s headquarters is located.
Food items, including bags of rice, beans, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, pasta, tomato pastes etc were handed over on Thursday, April 9, 2020 to Oba Abdul Fatai Aremu Aromire, the Ojora of Ijora, by a Massilia Motors team, led by the Deputy Managing Director of the company, Mr. Kunle Jaiyesimi.
While commending the efforts of government in checking the spread of Covid-19 in the country, the DMD said the company’s gesture “is a way of alleviating the hardship the Covid-19 lockdown may have on the people in our neighbouring community.”
It would be recalled that President Mohammadu Buhari recently imposed a lockdown on Lagos and Ogun states as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as a measure to cope the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
Masilia Motors is a joint venture of CFAO and Chanrai Group, focused on automotive needs in Nigeria.
