Foundation donates to Borno terror victims

24 June 2014, 21:49

Abuja - JAIZ Foundation, the social responsibility arm of the Jaiz Bank, has donated relief materials worth N10 million to victims of Boko Haram insurgency in Borno State.

The items donated include 200 bags of grains, 1,600 pieces of clothing materials for both men and women, 660 gallons of groundnut oil, among others.

The Maiduguri Branch Manager of the bank, Alhaji Baba Ali Bukar, delivered the material to the Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, at the Government House.

He said Jaiz Bank was ready to identify with the government to move the state forward.

"Your (state's) resolve to tackle the insecurity in the state and assisting the citizens of Borno state to rebuild their livelihood and
strengthening their productive capacity is commendable, we therefore, appeal to you to continue the good works you are doing to the people of the state despite the security challenges," said Bukar

Shettima thanked the management and staff of Jaiz Foundation for what he described as a "monumental gesture."

He said Jaiz Bank and Dangote Foundation had always identified with the government and people of Borno State.

The governor assured of the state government's readiness to continue to identify with the bank and called on other institutions and corporate bodies to emulate Jaiz and Dangote Foundations.
