One of Nigeria’s top banks, Fidelity Bank Plc, is putting its money where its mouth is.

Last week, the lender donated 50 million naira to the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, LSSTF as part of contributions to ensure that those who live in Lagos sleep with both eyes closed.

The Bank’s Executive Director, Lagos and South-West, Mrs Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe presented the cheque to the Executive Secretary, LSSTF, Dr. Abdulrassaq Balogun at a brief ceremony in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.

Onyeali-Ikpe who commended the Lagos State Government for its commitment to preserving public peace and protecting lives said security was paramount to business success.

“We are encouraged to support this initiative and kudos must be given to the Lagos State Government for the peace we are enjoying in the state today.

“We have over 80 branches, about 2,000 staff and millions of customers in the state. We are concerned about their safety all the time,” she stated.

Reacting to the gesture, the Executive Secretary of LSSTF, Abdurrazaq Balogun, commended the bank for the donation, saying that Fidelity Bank had been consistent in its support to the Fund from the time it started.

Apparently, the bank has been keeping its words having contributed a total of 175 million naira to the Fund since it started.

“Thank you, Fidelity Bank. We are most appreciative of this and what is most touching for us is your consistency. You have always come to our aid every year unsolicited,” said a grateful Balogun.

He gave some assurance to Fidelity Bank officials that the donation would be used judiciously.

He also reiterated the commitment of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode to ensure Lagos remains safe for everyone.
