Maersk supports Lagos students

As a sign of its commitment to supporting education, Maersk Nigeria Limited has shown support for the State Nursery and Primary School, Arakan Barracks, Apapa, Lagos by donating 1,000 exercise books to the students.

Also, staff members of the firm taught students in primaries 4 to 6 various subjects including English Language, Social Studies, Mathematics and French.

A statement quoted the Human Resources Manager of Maersk Nigeria, Ada Onyeri, as saying that the teaching exercise was part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility in the celebration of the 2017 International Women’s Day.

She said, “For us, it is an opportunity to give back to the society. State Nursery and Primary School has been our adopted school; we have had a number of CSR activities here. We have built some school blocks and donated equipment, among others.

“But this is done in commemoration of this year’s International Women’s Day.  Some of the female colleagues in our organisation supported by our men have come to use this occasion to teach the little ones and inspire them to be like us in future.”

The Head Teacher of the school, Dr. Louis Onukwufor, was quoted as saying that the firm had been very supportive of the school over the years.

He said, “In December 2014, they gave us 10 computers and accessories and during our last School Inter-House Sports Competition, they gave us other gifts. They also built four blocks of classroom in 2014 and refurbished our library.

“We want the staff members to tell the company that we appreciate them so much. We love what they are doing for us and wish that they continue to do more for us,” she said.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
