The show is billed to premiere on all FirstBank and Linda Ikeji TV platforms across the web and social media on Tuesday at 8 am and reposted at 7 pm.
First Class Material is a programme which aims to chronicle the success stories of Nigerians who are distinct and exemplary in their achievements and importantly, a testament to the greatness of the West African country.
The weekly show would have viewers exposed to Nigerians across the globe that have carved a niche for themselves by being exemplary and influential in their chosen endeavours and career path. Success stories of notable firsts and trailblazers would be highlighted, with viewers encouraged to go beyond limits and leave no stone unturned at making their dreams a reality.
Among the success stories to be broadcast through the course of the six months weekly programme is the brilliance of Ifeoma Thorpe-White, a 17-year-old Nigerian immigrant admitted into all eight Ivy League schools in the United States, including Stanford and Harvard universities.
Speaking on the TV show, the bank’s Group Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Folake Ani-Mumuney, said: “First Class Material is a celebration of notable firsts by Nigerians which underscores what First Bank of Nigeria Limited stands for. The essence of the TV programme is to have many more people informed and encouraged by the successes, thereby having these feats emulated in their chosen endeavours.
