LAGOS – THE Heritage Bank assured it would continue ensuring local girl children had access to education.

Managing Director of Heritage Bank, Ifie Sekibo, said the firm would have a voice in girl child education activism because of its belief that e”ducating a girl child is equal to educating a nation.”

“Heritage bank’s partnership with Zuriel Oduwole- an international girl child activist- further reiterates the importance of combating this problem and we have taken it as a cause that is worth championing selflessly and powerfully in the overall best interest of the African continent,” he said after a local college honoured him for his role in the upliftment of education in the country.

Meanwhile, the Alumni Association of the Federal Government Girls College in Benin City recently honoured some distinguished Nigerians for their role in the infrastructural upliftment of unity schools and general
development of education.

Among those honored are Sekibo are the Principal of the Federal Government College, Odi, Gladys Ekata Ekhabafe; President of the Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers, Albert Okumagba and the first female director of the
Lagos Business School, Dr Enase Okonedo.

President of the Alumni Association, Abosede Ozah Osho, in a statement, said the event was organized as a mark of honour for distinguished organisations and individuals who had been relentless in promoting the
survival of education and, in particular, the Unity schools, through various initiatives.
