Telecommunications company, Airtel Nigeria, has renovated and upgraded six primary schools in Nigeria to ultra-modern ones, the Managing Director, Segun Ogunsanya, has said.
The managing director made the disclosure at the opening of the upgraded Yahaya Hamza Primary School, Zaria, Kaduna State on Wednesday.
The primary school was renovated, upgraded and adopted by Airtel Nigeria as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Ogunsanya said other schools upgraded by the company included Oremeji Primary School II, Ajegunle, Lagos State; St. John’s Primary School, Oke-Agbo, Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State; and Community Primary School, Amumara in Imo State.
Others, he said, are Iyeru Okin Primary School, Ilara-Mokin, Kwara State; and Presbyterian Primary School, Ediba in Cross River State.
Ogunsanya said: “Over the years, Airtel has brought notable transformation to these schools by providing ultra-modern blocks of classrooms and borehole for portable water.
“It also donated classroom furniture, uniforms, bags and educational materials such as books, textbooks and pens on yearly basis.
“It is a complete package, not a one year wonder, but a continuing partnership.”
