Avery Nigeria partners Eriegwa Itsekiri Ladies Society to build police station, skill acquisition centre
This was done as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to the society.
As a responsible corporate citizen, ‘we respect the interests of our stakeholders, employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community and we actively seek out opportunities to contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we do business’, says the Managing Director, Avery Nigeria Limited, Mrs Ebisan Onyema.
The police station, she said, ‘will help to improve security in the town, while the skill acquisition centre will help not only the youth, but other residents of the community who are without job to acquire skills thereby developing themselves towards gainful employment’.
The National President of the society, Mrs. Roli Ibanga, at the presentation ceremony applauded the kind gesture by Avery Nigeria Limited.
She added that ‘the two projects when completed will serve their purposes and mark a turning point in the life of the host community’.
She also called on other parastatals both public and privately owned to emulate Avery and assist the government by contributing their own quota to the society.
