Nigeria’s premier bank, First Bank of Nigeria Limited, has reiterated its commitment to the cause of widows, assuring that it would continue to support and empower them to become financially independent.

This is in continuation of the 2018 edition of its corporate social responsibility program which seeks to create value-adding initiatives which go a long way in leaving lasting impacts on people and the society.

Themed: ‘Touching Lives; You First’, the CSR activity is also part of the bank’s desire to expand and deepen its involvement in communities where it operates while touching the lives of those around in meaningful ways.

According to its management, the initiative was rolled out across Nigeria and other Africa countries where FirstBank is located through its subsidiary; FBNBank. These subsidiaries include, FBNBank in the Republic of Congo, Ghana, The Gambia, Guinea, Sierra-Leone and Senegal.

Group executive, International Banking, Mrs. Bashirat Odunewu, at an empowerment programme for widows held recently to commemorate this year’s International Widows Day at the palace of the Elegushi of Ikateland, Lagos, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi explained that the initiative, in partnership with the International Women’s Society (IWS), was one of the activities of FirstBank’s 2018 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Week.

“As an institution with a community spanning over ten thousand people spread in ten countries, the bank found it paramount to begin from within; as charity does begin at home.
