Fidelity Bank Renovates School in Lagos

Fidelity Bank Plc has handed over a renovated, fully equipped block of classrooms to Ibafon Primary School, Ibafon, Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area, Apapa, Lagos.

The lender said the education sector remains critical to driving socio-economic development. The school project was initiated and implemented by the staff of Apapa Region of Fidelity Bank Plc., under the auspices of the Fidelity Helping Hands Program (FHHP).
Speaking at the occasion, Managing Director/CEO, Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo said that the project is  part of the banks efforts aimed at improving the education sector in the country.
Okonkwo said Nigeria’s  quest to be among the leading global economies  will be a mirage without a formidable workforce, a spin -off  of a sound education sector . He explained that  the FHHP is the Bank’s approach to giving back to the society.
Okonkwo, who was represented by Obaro Odeghe, Head, Apapa Regional Bank, enjoined other private organisations to partner with the government in its efforts to revive Nigeria’s ailing educational system and bring back its lost glory. Odeghe promised that the Bank will return next year to renovate the other blocks of classrooms and equip them with state-of-the-art furniture and equipment.
In his remarks, the Local Government Education Secretary, Solomon Aboluwodi commended Fidelity Bank Plc., for undertaking such a monumental project in the local government,. He noted that the  financial institution is already trailing the blaze in the CSR space and called on other corporate bodies to emulate Fidelity Bank. According to him, “if we have up to five organisations like Fidelity Bank in our different communities, the society will be a better place”.
