Fidelity Bank Plc has handed over a renovated, fully equipped block of classrooms to the management of Police Children School 2, Obalende, Lagos.
The bank also promised to renovate the two buildings beside the renovated block to make the environment conducive for children to learn.
The Managing Director/CEO, Fidelity Bank, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, at the commissioning of the classrooms last Friday in Lagos also announced that to mark the Children’s Day for the pupil of the school, the bank would also give the school a power generating set to power its lab as a result of irregular power supply in the country.
The pledge followed the appeal by Mrs. Moninuola Gbadegesin, Deputy Director/Zonal Inspector, Lagos Quality Assurance Office, who lamented the poor electricity supply in the area which prevents the school from making use of its lab. She, however, prayed the bank for assistance.
The CEO explained that the school project was initiated and implemented by the security men of Fidelity Bank around the country, under the auspices of the Fidelity Helping Hands Programme (FHHP).
He said the security men tasked themselves N500 each while the bank in its usual way supported the initiative to ensure it is actualised.
Okonkwo noted that the education sector remains critical to driving socio-economic development, adding that the project was part of the banks efforts to improve the education sector in the country.
In her speech, the Head Teacher, PCS, Mrs. Odudayo Oluwatoyin Adewunmi, appreciated the bank’s management for undertaking such a monumental project in the school.
