BUA sets to construct Hospital for Customs in Bauchi

The Chairman of BUA Group, Abdulsamad Rabiu through his Abdulsamad Rabiu Initiative Africa (ASR Africa) has invited the Comptroller-General of Customs, Wale Adeniyi to the groundbreaking ceremony of a hospital construction for the Nigeria Customs Service in Bauchi.

The Comptroller-General on Monday 29 April 2024, in Abuja, collaborated with the Abdulsamad Rabiu Initiative Africa (ASR Africa) to actualise humanitarian intervention projects in Africa.

During a meeting with the ASR Africa team at the Nigeria Customs Service Headquarters, CGC Adeniyi commended the organisation for its progress while pledging his full support to work with the foundation.

The Comptroller-General of Customs said, “I want to appeal to other stakeholders whose operations we impact and those who impact ours to partner with us to see how we can collaborate to enhance our operations in places that need interventions.

“There are other critical aspects of our operations for which we do not have adequate resources, and when we have interventions like this, it will go a long way. Since the welfare of NCS is your concern, the growth of ASR Africa will be of premium importance to us.”

He expressed readiness to submit whatever has been decided, adding, “It will be my pleasure to be at the groundbreaking event not just to show how happy we are but to express our gratitude to the foundation.”

The Managing Director of ASR Africa, Dr Ubon Udo, stated that the organisation is a personal initiative that intervenes in the area of health, education, and social development with an annual budget of 100 million dollars.

The MD revealed that the organisation seeks a partnership with NCS to achieve an environment that is safe and secure, developed, and better understands border integrity and security.
