Heritage Bank Plc, has reiterated its commitment to the development and growth of the Nation’s creative Industry.
Mr. Ifie Sekibo, the Managing Director and Chief Executive of the bank stated this in a statement issued by the Divisional Head, Corporate Communications of the bank at the weekend.
He said Heritage bank would continue to support the development and growth of the entertainment industry as it’s one of the easiest ways to solve the unemployment problems in the country.
Sekibo added that the Music industry has done so much for Nigeria in terms of employment and foreign exchange earnings and if more resources are channeled into it, the country would be better for it. Besides supporting, the bank has also partnered with some organisers to perform and produce some entertainment shows including partnership with Yibo Koko in association with Bolanle Peters to produce and perform Seki, a dance drama.
The event which was held at the popular Terra Kulture Arena, was graced by members of the diplomatic corps, bank officials and lovers of arts, featured notable celebrities like Hilda Dokubo, Monalisa Chinda Coker, Ibinabo Fiberisima, Julius Agwu, Ovunda Ihunwo, Peace Christian, Deborah Job, Opereke Jamabo Foh and Mercy Albert among others as casts.
