What we are doing here today, we are also doing in five other cities across Nigeria and this will do annually. Beyond this, we do so many other things like Airtel Touching Lives, where we assist those who need medical help or support. We invest in education and enable people to have access to the internet, beyond our core business of providing data, voice and other value as added service as a leading telecommunications operator in Nigeria.

“Most times we go around begging companies to do CSR but for Airtel, it is the opposite. it shows the premium they placed on their customers. Their vision is in tandem with our own vision which is health, education, youth employment and social inclusion. This is also in tandem with the state administration of Babajide San-wo Olu’s Themes Agenda” he said.
