The Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has called on other
corporate organizations operating in the state to emulate the worthy
example of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to show more commitment
in the fulfillment of their corporate social responsibilities.
Governor Dickson made the call on Monday, when he received a 6-member
team led by the Branch Controller, CBN in the state, Elder Godwill
Obiora in Government House, Yenagoa..
He hailed the efforts of the state branch of the CBN for promoting
socio-economic activities, as part of the bank’s corporate social
responsibility, noting that, its contributions to the development of
small and medium scale enterprises across the country have stimulated
the economy.
The Governor, particularly commended the apex financial institution
for its investments in the social sector, through the provision of
health, educational and other amenities and enjoined the apex bank to
explore other areas of collaboration with the state government to
boost development.
Governor Dickson, who also applauded the Federal Government and the
Central Bank for the proposed establishment of a school at Swali in
the state capital, directed the state Ministry of Education to liaise
with the bank, with a view to providing support to the project.
He acknowledged the branch for facilitating financial transactions,
not only for individual businesses, but also for the state government,
which he noted, has engendered economic growth, especially in the area
of complying with the government’s tax policies.
Earlier in his remarks, the Branch Controller of CBN, Bayelsa State,
Elder Godwill Obiora had said, the establishment of the bank in
Bayelsa in 2010 has significantly reduced the cost of transacting
banking business.
Elder Obiora, who noted that, the new office complex of the CBN in the
state would be completed soon, assured Governor Dickson of the bank’s
commitment to reserve the employment quota meant for Bayelsans in the
junior cadre.
Highlighting some of the bank’s development initiatives in the state,
he said, the Federal Government had provided health facilities,
furniture in some secondary schools, bore holes, as well as structures
for the Federal Government College, Imiringi, in the Ogbia local
government area.
