At the handing over ceremony of the facility recently, the state governor, Mr. Mohammed Jibrila Bindow commended the bank for supporting the development of education in the state and across the country through its sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

The governor who was represented at the event by the permanent secretary, ministry of education, Mr. Mahmud Abubakar, said the project was significant as it would go a long way to provide an appropriate learning environment for children in the community.

He urged other financial institutions to emulate Fidelity Bank, stressing that the “lender maintains high standards of integrity and professionalism in its relations with the state government and host community.”

In his remark, the school principal, Mr. Luka Usman thanked the bank for its timely intervention, saying the “project has brought to an end years of teaching and learning in a non-conducive environment.”

“The entire school was formerly built with mud and practically had dilapidated roofs. The pupils were made to learn under hard conditions by sitting on woods as school chairs, thereby making the environment unconducive for learning. This situation compelled Fidelity Bank to step in and gave the school a facelift,” he added.

In his response, the bank’s regional bank head, North East, Mr. Musa Tarimbuka said the school project was borne out of the realisation that education remains fundamental to the development of any economy.

He said the move was also in keeping with the culture of giving back to the society.

“Early education is one of the vital instruments to a child’s development and that is why the bank has taken this step to create conducive environment for the pupils to learn.

“Fidelity Bank strives to reinforce robust, healthy community relations by identifying with host communities in activities that are most relevant to them,” he added.
