COVID-19: First Bank To Solve Education Challenges Facing Parents by aminulive: 7:01pm On Mar 26
The CEO of FirstBank, Dr Adesola Adeduntan has announced that the Bank in partnership with government and other stakeholders is extending its attention to immediate needs in our society in the face of the widespread COVID-19 by putting in place complementary efforts in education to support students and minimize the disruption to education resulting from schools’ closure.

This is following the activation of the Bank’s Business Continuity Process and subsequent deployment of safety initiatives and measures implemented across its business outlets nationwide, to help flatten the curve and ensure the safety and wellbeing of staff customers and other stakeholders.

Dr Adeduntan explained that many parents are concerned about children and wards whose education is truncated by the current crisis and are particularly worried about keeping children at home idle as all schools from primary through to tertiary institutions are closed across the nation.

Emphasising the urgent need to ensure that our children are not disadvantaged, remain engaged and stay safe during this period, he announced the Bank has concluded plans with the necessary authorities to enable as many children as possible access e-learning.

Speaking on the initiative to enable as many children to move on to safe e-learning, Dr Adeduntan said “we are warmed by the fact that different organizations have risen to the various challenges and are supporting in areas such as health and welfare, and we feel the peculiar needs of our children and youth must not be left out and have therefore elected to focus on contributing to solving the current education challenge.

Education remains the bedrock of any society and we believe that when we educate our children we enable our nation and produce global citizens who provide groundbreaking solutions for the continent and the world at large. So, building educational partnerships is an avenue to support our children to remain resourceful and fully engaged at this time so they can compete favourably with their peers internationally. It’s a responsible approach to empower them given that they are our future and the foundation to build our country to greatness. By partnering on this we are solving a problem for families and for our future.”

To this end, we are working with the States; United Nations Global Compact; innovative technology firms such as Robert & John to provide e-learning solution with the Government approved curriculum for students across the country. The rollout begins first week in April starting with Lagos State where FirstBank will support the roll-out of Roducate which has been adjudged a best-fit solution by educators, teachers and all necessary authorities. This solution has the full curriculum on both the online and offline versions with the offline version of particular interest as it eliminates the challenge posed by data affordability.

We call on well-meaning organisations and individuals to join us and collectively rise to address the challenges this current pandemic presents to our children and youth and are reaching out to other organisations with complementary solutions to also partner on this initiative for the youth who are our future. They must not be lost in this pandemic’.

Watch out.

I have not stopped saying it. Nigeria will be great. The virus is doing more good than bad. We have to look within us at this point and do something good for ourselves.

A welcoming development. A times, failure doesn't mean it's over, but resharpens our thoughts to problems and how to levitates us to developing a better solution to make a better world.

Covid-19 no doubt is a worse pandemic that urgently needs world care medical attention but in the other hands has made the world especially Nigeria think beyond their horizon. Nations are diverting funds into creating war machines, while some are looting from public account and never taught about a pandemic ahead.

I have always wanted Nigeria to be the heaven I always dreamt of, but gradually, a drop of water makes an ocean. This is the best idea I have always wanted. A good education system where student can learn at the comfort of their environment. But it will be the worst nightmare ever.


A nation without stable power supply.
A nation with insecurity.
A nation without adequate Data center.
A nation with bad infrastructure.
A nation full of terrorist and herdsman.
A nation full of corruption.
A nation where people go to school to get certificate but not educated.
A nation where some belief chosen people will fly towards the sky and the world would be destroyed by fire.

Our only hope is to work on the mindset of the young ones which can be obtained by eradicating illiteracy.
Going to school doesn't necessarily eradicate illiteracy but EDUCATION does.
Good job at FIRST BANK

E-learning for this indomie generation that is only good at posting pictures all day on Facebook and abusing substances?

First Bank should channel that effort into seeking out people that can barely afford to go a day without working in other to find food to eat please! Education can wait, life first.
