First Bank of Nigeria Limited has reassured both existing and potential customers of its commitment to satisfy them while it reinforces the bank’s role in driving sustainable development in communities across the country.
To ensure the customers are satisfied, the nation’s oldest financial institution initiated a week of celebrating its Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability initiatives from September 25 – 29, 2017.
The week, according to its Group Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications, Ms. Folake Ani-Mumuney, would witness the culmination and consolidation of the Bank’s interventions in social responsibility, promoting random acts of kinds across communities in the six geo-political zones of Nigeria, FirstBank subsidiaries in United Kingdom and sub-Saharan Africa.
“The CR&S week is specially designed to reignite acts of kindness in our society and the events are tailored towards re-orientating the society along the right values; encouraging the citizenry to intentionally create positive impact in their immediate environment.
“The week-long activities will see FirstBank’s employees give their time and resources to promote random acts of kindness within their communities, driving welfare through giving and visits to orphanage/less privileged homes and IDPs. We would also hold career counseling sessions with secondary school students across the regions which would have staff coordinate impactful sessions that will inculcate financial literacy and inclusion in young students,” she said.
Ani-Mumuney added that the CRS week was mooted to stimulate a better society with random acts of kindness.
She said, “As an institution, we want to encourage the values of random kindness and we implore Nigerians and indeed everyone to go the extra mile to promote and celebrate kindness this week. Kindness does not have to be monetary but would always leave us with a better society we can all be proud of.”
