The statement said the ambulances were donated by Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNI) and its OML 13 partners; the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), South Atlantic Petroleum, China National Offshore Oil Company Nigeria and Prime.
It said the ambulances and vehicle documents were formally handed over by the General Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility, Total, Mr Ajukwura Wokomah to Mr Anthony Prezr, Director of Administration, DELSUTH at the company’s office in Lagos.
Wokomah pledged Total’s commitment to CSR activities especially in the health sector.
He said: “This ambulance is the second we are donating in fulfillment of our promise to DELSUTH.
“It is our pleasure and we hope this will serve its purpose. In the next few years when we come to check, we want to see it still being used actively. Our passion as a company is on safety and ensuring that we are actively giving back to every sector of the country.”
Responding, Prezr thanked TUPNI/NNPC and their partners for the gesture, noting that corporate social responsibility should be targeted at the end-users.
