Group Managing Director, Access Bank Plc., Herbert Wigwe, has reaffirmed the bank’s commitment to the educational development of children in Nigeria, saying it is an important tool to sustaining the future of the country.

Wigwe said this while addressing attendees at the Access Bank/UNICEF Charity Shield Polo Tournament which held at the Guards Polo Club, United Kingdom.

Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, and British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, were part of those who attended this year’s Charity Polo Tournament, Igbere TV reports.

“The number of out-of-school children in Nigeria is very worrisome, and if not tackled adequately does not bode well for the future of Nigeria. Access Bank identified this problem over 10 years ago and through the polo tournament has made considerable strides in improving the educational system in Nigeria,” Wigwe said.

“We will not relent in our efforts to ensure that Nigerian children are given the requisite educational foundation to succeed. So far, we have been able to raise over N1 billion and every kobo will be invested providing educational infrastructure, starting one Northern state at a time because that is where we find the highest number of out-of-school and displaced children.”

Wigwe further said that government buy-in was integral to the achievement of the financial institution’s set goals, thanking the Kaduna State Government for its support in the implementation of its projects.

Access Bank recently completed the refurbishment of a 12,000-capacity school and is set to complete another that will cater for an additional 1,200 students at the end of July.

Hmm! Money that should have been used to directly support the army of strong aspiring graduate entrepreneurs across the nation, and on the ground of merit! The economy will grow from across the clusters and employing more graduates and non graduates everywhere.

When the economy is set, strong and robust, every other sector including education will stand gidigba!

Nigerian goverment, especialy the Northern Administrators need to start arresting any parent that denials kids basic education

And Craming 604 pages of Arabic Quran without understanding Arabic isnt education, its the height of stupidity studying or craming just a book when a kid of this days needs atleast to learn mathematics, english/arabic or french

If he had shared that 1billion naira among 100 brilliant entrepreneurs in the south, he would have opened doors for at least 50 people's generations. They would never be born into poverty.

Impact can only be felt if they can separate religion from education... unfortunately the religion and religious beliefs supercedes.
