Chairman and founder of Zenith Bank Plc, Jim Ovia, has said that the bank would support the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) on infrastructure development.
Mr Ovia made the commitment shortly after the university’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael Adikwu, honoured him as pillar of the university.
Ovia was represented at the event by an assistant general manager at Zenith Bank, Valentine Eze.
He also pledged the bank’s partnership with the university to help some of its departments in capacity building.
Prof. Adikwu commended the bank for its support so far.
“I want to specially commend the speed with which that structure was executed and to me such shows the high level of effectiveness that Zenith Bank is known for in its business dealings with the public,” he said.
The Vice-Chancellor said he was concerned about getting other corporate bodies to join in improving infrastructure in the university.
