Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has commended Ecobank Nigeria for renovating and furnishing the main building at the Agbala Pediatric Centre in Ikorodu.

The bank had carried out high level renovation in the facility as part of its corporate social responsibility drive targeting women and children’s health.

According to the Chairman of Lagos State Health Service Commission, Dr. Bayo Aderiye, the feat 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.

Earlier, the Managing Director of 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.

He noted that “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”.

“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.”

Kie made it clear 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.

Ecobank had been a leading financial institution in delivering need-driven social investments.
