Akinwunmi Ambode, the Governor of Lagos State, over the weekend singled out the management of Zenith Bank Plc for praise over its commitment to corporate citizenship initiatives.
Ambode spoke at the inauguration of the Serenity Park and Gardens – a corporate social responsibility project undertaken by Zenith Bank Plc in collaboration with Iru-Victoria Island Local Council Development Area (LCDA)— at the Eko Hotel Roundabout, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Governor, represented by Dr. Babatunde Adejare, the Commissioner for the Environment, commended the bank for reconstructing the lay bys and improving the aesthetics of the Ajose Adeogun/Eko Hotel environs.
Mr. Peter Amangbo, MD/CEO of Zenith Bank Plc, in his remark, assured the Governor and the people of Lagos State that the bank remained committed to supporting and partnering the government’s vision and efforts to make the state a mega city.
Sole Administrator of Iru-Victoria Island LCDA, Princess Aderemi Adebowale, expressed delight that the project, which will serve as a relaxation and fun spot, was undertaken during her tenure. She also commended the bank for collaborating with her administration.
The reconstruction of the Ajose Adeogun Street has remained a role model for good corporate citizenship in the country, in addition to the annual decoration and light-up of the street at Christmas season in Lagos.
