The Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) says it has donated about 1,000 bags, books and learning materials to pupils and students in four states.
PHED’s Chief People Officer, Mobolaji Ajani, said this in a statement issued by the company’s Manager of Corporate Communications, John Onyi, in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
Ajani said that PHED was passionate to contribute to education advancement in Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River and Rivers states.
“As a mark of our support for children’s education, PHED deemed it fit to donate over 1,000 bags with associated writing materials such as pencils, biro, crayons and rulers.
“This gesture may not seem much, but we are assuring of our desire to support education across the four states of our operations.
“The company, as part of its Social Corporate Responsibility, will continue to engage in other projects that will improve the socio-economic growth of the region,” he said.
The official said the donation was presented to school children in local government areas of Eleme (Rivers), Abak (Akwa Ibom), Sagbama (Bayelsa) and Akamkpa
