Chireh Alhaji Ibrahim Adams stressed that the items were for free and should not be sold to anyone. He said his motivation is to encourage regular medical checkups. He said he has been appealing to other philanthropists to come home and contribute their quota to the national development. He said doing this would change the impression that everything is supposed to be done by the central government.
The chief said he was supported by his friend in New Jersey, United States of America Mr. Hosam, CEO of Bloomfield Pharmacy to do this donation and would encourage him to do more since the people are very happy about it.
