Beer Makers Nigeria

By Adedapo Adesanya

The Beer Sectoral Group (BSG) of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has announced the creation of N50 million fund to support those affected by the violence that erupted after peaceful #EndSARS protests across the country were disrupted.

The section of the manufacturing association made the announcement via a statement posted on Twitter.

The group, which comprises makers of the beer brands in the Nigerian market, denounced the spate of violence that has occurred around the country and called on other agencies to effectively work towards lending a hand to help the victims.

“Over the past few days, we have all witnessed the sad events that have taken place in our beloved country Nigeria. What commenced as a peaceful movement was overrun and became marred by violence, resulting in loss of lives and property across our nation.

“The Beer Sectoral Group of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria is committed to Nigeria, to the inclusivity and to the valuing of each other. We, therefore, denounce the violence that has erupted across our nation and we want to lend a hand to support those rendered vulnerable as a result of this critical social issue.

“To this end, we hereby announce the creation of N50 million fund to support the victims and families of those affected by this crisis. BSG will be working with partner agencies to administer this fund.

“We know that this does not bring back the lives that have been lost or undo the injustice many have suffered, but we believe it is a step towards healing our vibrant nation and reinforce our commitment to contribute to the dialogue and action which can support a better Nigeria for everyone,” the statement read.

The BSG under MAN includes key producers in the beer sector such as Nigerian Breweries Plc, Guinness Nigeria Plc, International Breweries Plc, amongst others.
