As part of it’s Corperate Social Responsibility (CSR), the first indigenous and only private university in Cross River State, Arthur Jarvis university Akpabuyo has donated items worth hundreds of thousands to the Cross River State Government to support in the fight against Coronavirus pandemic.

Items which include 150 bottles of hand sanitizer, 2000 hand gloves, 500 face mask, 400 reflectors for cyclists, posters and flyers interpreted in Efik.

According to the Chancellor, Arthur Archibong the institution which is mentored by the University of Calabar  has no motivation in the donation rather, it is born out of the state of things at the moment.

He added that, the State Government need support in making sure the disease is prevented in the State.

“We don’t have motivation apart from the state of things now. It is a type of health war against humanity. We have to do everything possible to support the effort of the Governor in ensuring it does not come anywhere to Cross River State. We will do everything to support their efforts.” He said.

In her response, Dr. Betta Edu after receiving the items lauded the institution for the gesture and being the first institution to support the fight against COVID 19.

She beckoned on all and sundry to join the campaign for a healthier Cross River State.

After the donation, the team from the university moved to their host community (Akpabuyo) where they enlightened the people about the disease.
