Second Coming Nigeria Limited, a major Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) company, in conjunction with Enugu State Government, has donated 35,000 litres of LPG (cooking gas) worth ₦12 million to residents of Enugu state as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to ameliorate the suffering of the citizens.

The Managing Director of the company, Dr. Basil Ogbuanu, who made the donation, said the 35,000 liters (20,000 kg) LPG donation was part of the company’s support to the government’s effort at ameliorating the suffering of the people who cannot afford the commodity in their kitchen this yuletide.

According to Ogbuanu, ” ln the spirit of the Yuletide and as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), also, in support of His Excellency’s sterling leadership and good work to the people of Enugu State each of our four plants in the state will give out 12.5 kg of gas to 400 people in four locations of the State. This is in conjunction with the Enugu State Government to support the people of Enugu State during this festive season.”

Ogbuanu said that the product would be distributed freely to residents so that they can have gas to cook their food this period that the world is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

He commended the State Government for its focus and commitment in ensuring that businesses enjoy a friendly environment to thrive.

Ogbuanu who holds a Phd in Entrepreneurship thanked all the loyal customers of Second Coming gas plants for believing in the company’s tradition of honesty and transparency over the years.

He further appealed to LPG dealers to support the government towards ameliorating the suffering of the people at this period of sharing and giving.

Ogbuanu, however, commended the federal and state governments for the frantic efforts towards eradicating the use of firewood for cooking and called on governments at other levels to key into the drive.

Meanwhile, various residents who benefited from the free gas expressed happiness over the company’s act of benevolence to alleviate their plight by providing free cooking gas to them.
