Airtel Adopts Yahaya Hamza Primary School, Zaria

Emeka Oparah, Airtel Director of Communications and CSR
Leading   telecommunications   service   provider,   Airtel Networks Limited, has announced the adoption of Yahaya Hamza Primary School, Zaria, Kaduna State, as part of its education initiative, Adopt-a-School.

The   adoption   was   announced   yesterday,   February   16th,   2016,   in   Kaduna   when   the company's Director of Communications & CSR, Emeka Oparah, paid a courtesy visit to the Honorable Commissioner for Education, Dr. Shehu Usman Adamu in his office. 

According to Oparah, Airtel will adopt the school for an initial four-year period and will renovate   the   buildings,   provide   furniture,   water   borehole,   modern   toilet   facilities, uniforms and books for the pupils and training for the teachers. 

The key objective of the company's adoption of primary schools, Oparah explained, is to support the basic foundations of education and help in molding the future leaders of our country Nigeria.

The Honorable Commissioner, Dr. Adamu, commended Airtel for the kind gesture, which he said was in line with the state government's objective of investing in and developing education as a fundamental platform for national development. He promised to ensure that the teachers Airtel would train would not be posted out of the school so that the pupils and indeed the school would have the full benefit of the adoption. 

Airtel Nigeria has already adopted schools in Lagos, Ogun, Imo, Kwara and Cross River States.
