First Bank of Nigeria Limited has expressed its commitment to help businesses survive during the COVID-19 period.

During a webinar organised by the bank, with the theme, ‘Navigating the financial impact of COVID 19 – Business leaders’ role in finding a new normal’, it offered key research-based insights to help corporate customers make well-informed decisions on their businesses.

The Chief Executive Officer, First Bank, Dr Adesola Adeduntan, led the discussion on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the Nigeria financial sector.

He said the virtual event was organised to deliberate on ways through which corporate organisations could stay ahead of the coronavirus pandemic, while reinforcing their business activities with a view to sustaining their continued contribution to the national economy.

He said, “At First Bank, we are an active member of the CACOVID and have launched several isolation centres and donated medical equipment in various locations in Nigeria.

“Recently, we donated medical equipment to the government of Borno and 160-bed capacity at Osun isolation centre on behalf of CACOVID.

“Also, we have kicked off with our e-learning solution with the government approved curriculum to drive one million students through e-learning with free subscriptions for 10,000 students.”
