| October 29, 2012

The BAT Nigeria Foundation, an independent arm of British American Tobacco Nigeria, has donated a cassava processing cottage factory to the Achoze community in the tobacco growing state of Kogi, according to a story in the Nigerian Tribune, relayed by the TMA.

Dr. Gbenga Ibikunle, speaking on behalf of Dr. Christopher Kolade, chairman of the foundation, said the move was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility program, which focused on four areas: agriculture, potable water supply, the environment and education.

Ibikunle said the foundation would not exercise any control over the factory, which, he added, belonged to the community.
