The Chief Executive Officer, First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Adesola Adeduntan, has reiterated the gains of investment in knowledge and the educational system for the good of society.
He spoke yesterday as a special guest at the inauguration of projects at Lafiaji Senior High School, Lagos Island. He said as with every investment, there were high expectations of returns and the utmost returns of these projects will be the outstanding performances by the students in this school.
“It is always my pleasure to identify with the Rotary Club, as every such interaction leaves a lasting impact of the values of visionary and purposeful leadership, which your club epitomizes in the way you latch onto every opportunity to demonstrate humanity at its best. We at FirstBank are proud to be witnessing the inauguration of the laudable projects the Rotary Club of Lagos embarked on in Lafiaji Senior High School which have materialised today.”
“These achievements illustrate values that resonate with us at FirstBank. We have over the years demonstrated a dogged commitment to promoting educational development as a major component of our corporate responsibility and sustainability programmes. We, therefore, share the common vision for Education and Health as we see demonstrated here today,” he said.
Adeduntan explained that as part of the numerous ways by which FirstBank reinforces its commitment to the education sector, the bank has provided far-reaching educational interventions over the past 127 years.
“For instance, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, FirstBank strengthened the education sector to recover by launching the e-learning initiative aimed at moving one million students across the nation to e-learning. We also supported public school students in Lagos State with 20,000 mobile devices loaded with an educational curriculum to keep them engaged during the lockdown. Notably, this initiative has received global recognition and awards,” he said.
