The Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN), the umbrella body of all professional Nigerian Chemists has pledged its full support for the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 to ensure total defeat of the coronavirus pandemic. 

CSN National President, Professor Sunday Olawale Okeniyi, made the pledge recently on behalf of the society, while presenting the hygienically produced, high quality instant hand sanitizers of the society, named CHEMSOTIZER and nose masks to the Presidential Task Force Team on covid-19 in Abuja.

“Chemical Society of Nigeria is making the gesture as a civic duty to contribute its own corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the current fight against combating the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and also to complement the efforts of PTF on Covid-19 at federal and state levels in ensuring that lives of Nigerians are safe”, he said.

Professor Okeniyi noted: “We are aware that the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus, which is of the betaCov lineage is very contagious and causing many deaths among the vulnerable, influential members of our societies and health care professionals”.

He added that the society, being an apex professional body for Chemical Scientists in the country, deemed it fit to look inward and pool resources together to produce the instant drying sanitizers; pointing out that CSN also commissioned an affiliated highly rated firm to mass produce high quality nose masks, hygienically made to meet global standard. 

The CSN President also extended the hands of fellowship of the society to the PTF Team; when he said inter alia that: “On our part, our doors are open and we are available to give any technical advice and support to the fight towards achieving the desired objectives and with your unalloyed support, we are confident of carrying out more herculean tasks and prove to the world that Nigeria is a great country that can rely on her professionals in combatting future challenges”.

Receiving the CHEMSOTIZERS and NOSE MASKS from the CSN President, Permanent Secretary General Services in the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, OSGF, Mr. Olusegun Adekunle who stood in for the PTF Covid-19 chairman, Mr.  Boss Mustapha said, “Nigeria could not afford to come out of this pandemic without lessons learnt and systems put in place to combat future challenges”. 

Mr. Adekunle stressed the importance of research activities in situations like this and announced that the PTF and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had created a platform for research funding. He therefore called on CSN and other researchers to take advantage of the platform and send in their proposals for consideration. According to him, the PTF is looking forward to a greater synergy with professional bodies like the CSN in order to achieve greater results. While encouraging Nigerians to undertake essential travels only, he said the new slogan in the protection and prevention of the virus among the citizens, both the vulnerable and the influential during this current community transmission stage should be ‘COVID-19 must stop with me’.

In his remarks, the National Coordinator, Presidential Task Force on COVID 19, Dr Sani Aliyu described the pandemic as the most challenging health emergency of our time. According to him, no community in the world is immune from the pandemic adding that we have to build our own system to fight it. Dr. Aliyu warned that the pandemic would not ease out soon and said that Nigerians should take responsibility, individually and as a people, as we expect higher fatality figures in the coming months. He also advised Nigerians to take proper care of their elderly relations to protect them from contracting the virus. He also reiterated the essence of using high quality and standardized products like the ‘CSN Chemsotizer’ in the fight against the pandemic and called for closer collaboration between the CSN and PTF on Covid-19 in the area of research, innovation and production of high quality and standard products meant for the fight against the pandemic.

All chemical scientists in Nigeria, are called upon by the CSN President, to register for the forth coming CSN 43rd Annual International Conference, “Abuja 2020” scheduled to hold on 22nd-27th November, 2020 at
