Access Bank committed to customers, add value to its environment ~Wigwe
The chief executive of Access Bank Plc, Herbert Wigwe has said that the bank is committed to offering more to its customers and ensuring a positive impact on the operational environment.
Wigwe, who spoke at the commissioning of a road constructed by the bank within the Oniru areas of Lagos, said the construction of roads within the areas by the bank was part of its contributions to add value to its environment.
“At the heart of Access Bank’s business operations is our commitment to offering ‘More’ to our customers and more extensively, positively affecting the communities in which we operate.
“Our track record speaks for itself as we have successfully executed similar projects in Oyin Jolayemi Street, Danmole Street and other areas. Indeed, community and social impact have become enshrined parts of our DNA as a bank.
“We appreciate the Lagos State Government, led by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for the incredible support received during the execution of this project. Our commitment to facilitating a greater Lagos will not end here and I am truly excited about the infrastructural, technological and social advancements that our partnership will foster.”
“The Victoria Island and Lekki axis are two of the most commercial areas in Lagos State, witnessing a huge daily exchange of economic activities and as a result, commuters.
About 40 percent of the employed population in the formal sector in Lagos work in Victoria Island, and a good percentage of these workers have their offices situated around the Oniru axis.”
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in his speech while commissioning the road commended the CEO of Access and Wigwe, described him as, “a true believer of our government, a real partner and somebody you can truly depend on and rely on as a friend.”
Some of the roads delivered under the project are Ligali Ayorinde Muri Okunola – Aboyade Cole, Yesufu Abiodun Oniru, Ligali Ayorinde/Akinbolagbe/Okene amongst others
The governor said the partnership with Access Bank reinforced the importance of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in delivering public infrastructure.
