Access Bank Group Managing Director, Herbet Wigwe, celebrates Childrens Day with the Children of Slum2School
To celebrate this year’s Children’s Day, the Managing Director of the Access Bank Group, Herbert Wigwe visited the Adekunle High School Slum2School kids.
The visit underscores his belief in the potential of young people and the future of Nigeria. Herbert shared his secret of success with the pupils while encouraging them to adopt the values of discipline and hard work in all their endeavors.
He stated that young people need to imbibe the habit of saving while reiterating that the reason why many people do not reach their potential is that they choose to spend their finances on trivial things while not saving for the rainy day. There was also a question and answer session where the kids actively engaged the Access Bank GMD.
To wrap up the event, one of the students, Goodluck, a paternal orphan who makes slippers after school hours, decided to make a pair of slippers to gift Herbert, without expecting anything in return. Touched by this gesture, GMD, Herbert Wigwe, got a savings account opened in Goodluck’s name, and credited it with one hundred thousand naira to help he and his family grow their shoe business. Love, laughter, some teary moments, but importantly, hope, characterized Herbert Wigwe’s visit to slum to school.
