Airtel Nigeria has reiterated its commitment to uplift and support the less privileged in the country through its social intervention programmes.
This was made known in Lagos by the company’s Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, during the launch of its season 3 revolutionary Corporate Social Responsibility programme tagged, ‘Touching Lives’
He said that the Airtel has offered practical relief, succour, hope, opportunities and credible platforms to liberate and empower the underprivileged, disadvantaged and hard to reach persons in the society.
He said, “At Airtel, we believe that to be a great company, we must first be a good company, and we are very much committed to earning our social license – the love and acceptance of the various communities and people we serve.
“When we launched the maiden edition of Touching Lives, major stakeholders especially the media wanted to know if the initiative was a one-off and if the launch was just for media exposure and brand building.
“Our responses haven’t changed – Airtel Nigeria is committed to creating positive impact in the various communities it operates in and we are genuinely inspired to uplift the less privileged around us as well as create prosperity platforms for many Nigerians on a long-term, sustainable basis”.
Delivering their goodwill message at the unveiling of Touching Lives, the Founder/Chief Executive Officer, Brila FM, Dr. Larry Izamoje and the Publisher of Business Day newspaper, Mr. Frank Aigbogun, commended the telco for its life touching programmes, especially for the less privileged across the country.
