The Chairman of First Bank Plc, Mrs Ibukun Awosika, stated that the 125km relay walk gave the bank an opportunity to look forward to the future.
In a statement, Awosika said this in Lagos at ‘First Bank 125km relay walk’ to celebrate the bank’s unbroken business operations for 125 years.
She noted that it had been a relay of different generation building, adding value and passing the baton forward.
The Chief Executive Officer, Dr Adeshola Adeduntan, noted that the relay walk was very significant and symbolic for the bank.
He also noted that the relay was symbolic because it was a collaborative effort not just for First Bank, but other operating entities within the FBN holdings family such as FBNQuest, and FBN Merchant bank.
Adeduntan stated, “We came together to organise the relay. The significance is that when you think of a relay and you think of 125km, if you want to run 125km as an individual, you can get tired, but when you collaborate, and the bits and pieces of the 125 is accomplished by different individuals, that is the power of synergy in display and it shows you what can be achieved when you walk together as a team.”
