COVID-19: UNILORIN to produce N30m hand sanitisers for Kwara govt.
In its bid to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) in Kwara State, the state government has contracted the Technical Entrepreneurship Centre (TEC) of UNILORIN to produce various sizes of hand sanitisers for onward distribution to residents of the state.
Director of the centre, Dr Jamiu Kolawole Odusote, who said this in the university publication, Unilorin Bulletin, on Monday, added that the production contract is worth over N30million.
Dr Odusote also said that the UNILORIN management had last week concluded arrangements with the state government on the need to engage the university’s TEC for mass production of hand sanitizer.
The Director said that the centre had swung into action, promising that the consignment would be ready within a week.
Dr Odusote explained that the arrangement was to produce four different sizes of hand sanitizer which are 150ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1,000ml, saying that the products would be of high quality.
He said that the centre has the capacity to produce a large volume of hand sanitizer within a reasonable period of time, adding that the management would leave no stone unturned to ensure that the goods are delivered at specification
