A former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has distributed protective items and foodstuffs to churches, mosques and correctional centers.
Sani while making the donation in Kaduna on Wednesday, urged Nigerians to stand together and fight Coronavirus.
He berated the elites and political leaders for neglecting and destroying the public healthcare system over the years.
He added that the days of reckoning had come for those charged with the responsibility of turning around Nigeria's hospitals but refused to take action.
