Zenith Bank seeks youth’s commitment to greater Nigeria
Group Managing Director of Zenith Bank Nigeria, Mr. Peter Amangbo, has urged Nigerian youths to be committed to the country’s ideals, as they continue their pursuit for a greater and better tomorrow for themselves.
He said this yesterday in Lagos at the bank’s 2018 Christmas Youth Parade, noting that: “There is no country that can progress without its children and the youths. They are tomorrow’s leaders. If you bring them out well and empower them, you can be assured of a successful country in the future.”
Reiterating the need for commitment and loyalty, he said: “We want the youths to know that we have a lot of prospects in this country, and it is for them to be committed, focused and loyal to the country, and that is actually the essence of what we are doing.”
He said the parade was the company’s way of giving back to the environment, particularly to youths and children, “which had always been at the core of what we do as a bank because we have realised that the children and the youths are the leaders of tomorrow.”
Speaking on the Zenith children account, Amamgbo explained: “The account is dedicated to children and the objective is for you to ensure that at their early age, they are already financially lifted. They have already learnt what an account is about. They have been taught to be prudent, they have already known about finance and banking, and you can actually save for their future, especially their education all through their secondary, university, and postgraduate education, which is the objectives of Zenith children account.”
Also speaking, Deputy Managing Director of the bank, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, said the event provides the platform for youths to be encouraged and aspire to high levels. According to him, “the children are the leaders of tomorrow and as long as they are hardworking, committed and disciplined, they are the ones who will take over from us.”
