The Executive Director in charge of North East/North West, Alhaji Abubakar Abba Bello and former Minister of State for Finance and Director of the Bank, Mrs. Yabawa Lawan Hamma Wabi led the Unity Bank’s delegation to deliver the relief items to the Borno State Government, Maiduguri, recently for onward distribution to different IDP camps.

Presenting the relief materials, the Executive Director recalled that the partnership between the Bank and Borno state over time motivated Unity Bank to present the donations as part of its corporate social responsibility to make meaningful impact and intervention in areas where it operates. He added that the current gesture is aimed at complementing the previous donation by the Staff of Unity Bank Plc to support the cause of the displaced persons and rehabilitate victims of insurgency.

Alhaji Bello also said that the Bank is willing to partner Borno State to rebuild its agricultural base as a means of fast tracking the process of reintegration of the IDPs with their communities and also sustaining improvement of living standards of the victims.

“Unity Bank is well acclaimed for being in the forefront of initiative for supporting agriculture in Nigeria and since rehabilitation of the victims of insurgency can be achieved faster through agriculture, the Bank is undoubtedly your preferred partner in this regard” the ED stated.

Governor Shettima praised the numerous gestures of Unity Bank Plc and acknowledged the Bank’s consistent support to the state, especially the donation of N25 million in support of the State’s University projects in 2014
Unity Bank is the only Bank in Borno State that did not close operations to its teeming customers even in the thick of the insurgency experienced in the state.

Given the Bank’s focus on growing the Agriculture, Rural economy and SMEs, the early resettlement of the victims of the insurgents aligns with initiative for the Bank’s corporate social investment.
