Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an initiative that businesses assume in order to give back to the communities in which they operate.

In the same vein, responsible individuals give back to the society as a way of showing love, appreciation and wealth distribution in their sphere of influence or immediate environment and beyond.

Giving back takes the form of interventions in the socio-economic well being of the people in areas such as health care, education, infrastructure, etc.

Not all wealthy individuals or businesses, for selfish or other reasons, seek to touch lives or champion the CSR initiative. However, those who do impact positively on their host communities and/or the beneficiaries.


In as much as it is common practice for individuals and businesses to restrict their personal or CSR interventions to their host communities, Senator (Prince) Buruji Kashamu (SPBK) has extended his personal and business interventions beyond his immediate environment, touching the lives of people he does not have anything to do with and may never  meet in his life time. This practice is highly commendable and worthy of emulation.


It is indeed outstanding to see a man who does business with a human face. He has also brought this trait to public service. The well-being of the people, especially the masses is his primary concern. He is compassionate and selfless in dealing with people who are not in a position to reciprocate his kind gestures towards them. Of a truth.

SNEPCo donates cancer equipment to National Hospital

The Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) says it has donated a linear accelerator radiotherapy equipment worth over $1 million to the National Hospital, Abuja.

Speaking an event to commemorate the world cancer day on Sunday, Akinwumi Fajola, SNEPCo’s representative, said the donation was one of the company’s ways of giving back to the society.

Fajola explained that the gesture was in the bid to strengthen the quality of healthcare services in Nigeria.

Earlier, Isaac Adewole, minister for health, said the federal government plans to roll out nationwide screening for common types of cancers.

Adewole said the newly-installed machine would reduce the wear and tear of the first machine.

According to him, the old machine has treated over 200 patients and helped to check the medical tourism of patients who travel abroad for cancer treatment.

“I have also encouraged some state government to invest on both radiotherapy and chemotherapy to improve quality of care and survival of cancer patients,” the minister said.

Cancer patients in Nigeria have been dying in numbers due to difficulty in accessing radiotherapy treatment.

Nigeria has less than one radiotherapy machine to one million people compared to one machine to 250,000 people in other climes.

This has forced Nigerians to go to Ghana and other countries for treatment. About 10,000 cancer deaths and 250,000 new cases are recorded yearly.
