Members of staff of ntel Nigeria have donated N602, 411 to internally displaced persons (IDPs). Making the announcement in a statement, Sesor Empowerment Foundation, a non-governmental organisation that works primarily for the benefit of IDPs, said they were excited about the donation from staff and partners of ntel to Sesor for the displaced persons.
“Representatives of ntel Nigeria were at our office on February 27 to make the donation worth N602,411 on behalf of their colleagues,” said the statement.
Sesor further explained that, while speaking at the presentation of the cheque, Jenika Mukoro, General Manager of the Brand Management, said the staff decided to make the donation to support the organisation’s work with the displaced.
Sesor’s Communications Officer, Jasmine Asekome, thanked the ntel team for the kind gesture, stating that the funds will be used to support victims of the militant herdsmen attack in Benue State.
Many communities in six local government areas were attacked by militant herdsmen on January 2, leaving 73 men, women and children dead with over 80,000 displaced.
Relief materials, Sesor said, are yet to reach some of the victims taking refuge in a few of the camps as well as host communities.
“Sesor and its partners will continue to visit affected communities with relief materials and begin to assess medium to long term support for the displaced,” the statement said.
While thanking ntel staff and all its supporters, Sesor called on other individuals and corporate bodies to donate to the worthy cause of providing relief for displace people.
