Aregbesola lauds bank’s community projects
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.
