Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has lauded the Management of Zenith Bank Plc on its commitment to corporate citizenship initiatives.
The governor gave the commendation 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 at the weekend.
Ambode, who was represented by Commissioner for the Environment Dr. Babatunde Adejare, commended the bank for reconstructing the lay bys and improving the aesthetics of the Ajose Adeogun/Eko Hotel environs.
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.
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 commended the bank for collaborating with her administration and urged the in coming administration to give priority to the maintenance of the facility.
