The President of Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), Prince Adetokunbo Kayode has commended members of the chamber for their resilience and contribution in the efforts towards the fight against the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
He made this known in a message after assessing the remote working initiative embarked upon by the Chamber last week.
It could be recalled that, the chamber was closed to physical traffic a week ago as part of its efforts to minimise the risk of the spread of the corona virus.
He enjoined members to embark only on functions and activities that would minimise the risk of spreading COVID 19 to clients, families, friends and the general public.
While appreciating some of the measures put in place by members of the chamber in their respective business premises or places of work, he also expressed the appreciation of the Executive and Management committees of the chamber.
Prince Kayode called on members to continue to play their part to support the general global efforts in ending the pandemic.
“We must bear in mind that this pandemic has brought economic hardship on all nations of the world. Nigeria is not an exception.
“Be that as it may I would like to express my deep appreciation to the members of our Chamber who have demonstrated resilience inspite of the hard times. I am aware that some of them are already involved in sensitisation activities.
“These are highly commendable efforts. The Chamber will do all it can to support its members in this difficult economic times. We all have to ensure that we operate within the guidelines provided by the Federal Government”, Prince Kayode stated.
Following the recent broadcast by the HE President Muhammadu Buhari, ACCI might re-open on Monday, 13th April, 2020.
