Enterprise Bank partners Moneygram on educational development in Nigeria
LAGOS-As part of the activities to support the development of education in the country, Enterprise Bank Limited (EBL), distributed 1000 exercise books recently to the pupils of Payne Primary School in Benin, the Edo State capital.
According to a statement, signed by Olusola Longe-Okenimkpe, Head, Corporate Communications, EBL, the presentation, which was done in conjunction with MoneyGram International Money Transfer under the MoneyGram-Agent ‘Back-To-School’ programme initiative put smiles on the faces of both teachers and pupils of Payne Primary School.
Making the presentation on behalf of MoneyGram and EBL, Godswill Esangbedo, the bank’s Branch Manager, who represented Ahmed Kuru, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, said the gesture was a way of giving back to members of the society who embraced Enterprise Bank Limited, as the bank of choice for receiving money from their loved ones and business associates from across the globe.
“The 1000 books we have shared today in Benin City is a sign of many more good things that our customers will continue to benefit as long as they continue to make use of the services of ManeyGram services at Enterprise Bank.
Therefore we urge you to spread the good news by telling your loved ones and business associates where ever they may be in the world to continue to patronise us.
The choice of exercise books is also a pointer to the emphasis of the bank towards the development of education in the country, which we believe is the bedrock for any meaningful socio-political and economic growth.”
Esangbedo added that the bank has been fully capitalized, adding that the current financial capacity of the bank will ensure rapid growth and eventual emergence as one of the most profitable banks within the shortest possible time. Consequently, the banker said, it is for this reason that the MoneyGram/Enterprise Bank alliance is determined to offer the best in terms of value-added services in the money transfer market in Edo State.
Earlier the MoneyGram International representative, Kofi Akyea, said the donation of the 1000 exercise books was to encourage the pupils to study hard and become the leaders they want to be tomorrow.
In her response after the presentation, Mrs. R.I. Ojo, Head Teacher of Payne Primary School thanked MoneyGram and Enterprise Bank for making her school a beneficiary of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. Describing it as novel, Ojo said there was no better way of expressing our belief in the future of the country than to show practical support for the development of education from the foundational level.
Present at the presentation were representatives of MoneyGram as well as members and staff of the bank.
