Foremost drug manufacturing company in Nigeria, Dana Drugs Limited, with branches across all geo-political zones of the federation, has donated a brand new state-of-the-art delivery van to the Ogun State Hospital Management Board (OSHMB).
The donation, which held on 21January, at the Ogun State Ministry of Health Secretariat premises, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, had Pharm. Gerald Oputa, Dana’s assistant vice-president (Sales and Marketing), Pharm. Fred Ohwavborua, Dana’s business development manager, and officials of OSHMB in attendance.
Presenting the delivery van, Oputa said, “We believe this delivery van will assist in the re-distribution of drugs and consumables from the Central Medical Stores to the various hospital units across Ogun State. We appreciate the State government and Ministry of Health for the support given us.”
He added that the donation was part of Dana’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.
Receiving the delivery van, the Ogun State Honourable Commissioner for Health, Dr Babatunde Ipaye, thanked Dana Drugs for the gesture, while assuring that the vehicle would beused for the purpose for which it was donated.
