Ecobank renovates Ikorodu medical centre

Ecobank Nigeria

The Lagos State Government has commended Ecobank Nigeria for renovating and furnishing the main building at the Agbala Pediatric Centre in Ikorodu, as part of the lender’s corporate social responsibility effort directed at women and children.

The Chairman, Lagos State Health Service Commission, Dr. Bayo Aderiye, said the contribution by Ecobank would go a long way in resuscitating healthcare delivery at the centre.

He said that the children’s pediatric centre, which is a strategic health facility for residents in Ikorodu and the environs, had long desired this facelift.

Aderiye used the opportunity to call on other corporate bodies to support the government in enhancing strategic public facilities that had direct impact on the people.

The Managing Director, Ecobank Nigeria, Charles Kie, said the renovation of the Agbala Pediatric Centre by the bank was a promise kept as part of a weeklong Environmental Sustainability Campaign in line with the business mantra of the bank.

According to Kie, the guiding principle for corporate social responsibility activities by the bank is to give back and contribute effectively to the communities in which it operates.

He said, “Ecobank is a responsible and caring corporate citizen, assisting people and underprivileged groups to enhance their lives. We also encourage creativity and excellence among Africans, especially the young people, who we see as the future of our continent.”

He reiterated that the vision of the Agbala project revolved around the need to create a conducive healthcare environment for the most vulnerable among Nigerians– the women and children.
