Aregbesola lauds bank’s com­mu­nity projects

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Sun­day Michael Ogwu, La­gos

The Gov­er­nor of Osun State, Og­beni Rauf Aregbesola, has com­mended Ster­ling Bank Plc for its con­tri­bu­tion to clean­ing the en­vi­ron­ment through the pro­vi­sion of nec­es­sary in­cen­tives to check­mate en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges.

The gov­er­nor, who made the com­men­da­tion while re­ceiv­ing re­flec­tive cov­er­alls do­nated by the bank to the Osun Waste Man­age­ment Author­ity (OWMA) in Oshogbo, said the items would con­trib­ute to high­way safety.

Aregbesola said: “By this donation, Ster­ling Bank has demon­strated its com­mit­ment to en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity. These cov­er­alls with­out any doubt will make the High­way Man­agers vis­i­ble from afar and pre­vent the in­ci­dents of mo­torists run­ning into them.

“It will pro­vide safety against oc­cu­pa­tional haz­ards and also give them a sense of dig­nity as op­posed to ap­pear­ing im­prop­erly dressed and un­kempt and el­e­vate their sta­tus as they see them­selves as very rel­e­vant to the so­ci­ety through the ser­vice they pro­vide,”he said.

Ear­lier, the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Ster­ling Bank Plc, Mr Lanre Ade­sanya, said that the pre­sen­ta­tion of cov­er­alls was in line with the bank’s strate­gic fo­cus on the en­vi­ron­ment.

He said that the bank was also in part­ner­ship with Enugu, Kaduna, Rivers, Delta, Abia, Ogun and La­gos states.
