Seem like they are not just only relevant in Nigeria, but they are in a steady climb to take over the world as the “premium/premiere banking institution” in Nigeria. After their merger with Diamond Bank which before the merger was one of the top Nigerian banks, the new entity that emerged from the merger and that is still referred to as Access Bank h, still under the able stewardship of Herbert Wigwe, their Group MD have since become probably Nigeria’s biggest and number 1 banking institution bar none and they are still climbing.
The goodness of the season has even touched or extended to their UK, London subsidiary too as well, as they recently too, declared some good profit for the year ended. So it’s not just only about trailblazing as per expansion and profitability in Nigeria, they are also big-big when it comes to CSR, by that we believe you all know that that means “corporate social responsibility”.
So their annual charity train moved again to London like they normally do every year. It is the annual “Access Polo Tournament” which they do in conjunction or in collaboration with Fifth Chukker. This beautiful relationship is a charity event aimed at helping to raise funds annually towards raising fund in partnership with Unicef Nigeria for education projects in the North to build and equip 70 new classrooms.
The annual event has become a must visit or better still must be a part of for Nigerians both at home and abroad. This year’s multi-days event was another exciting one as expected and those who attended were in their summery best, with both the current Group MD, Herbert Wigwe and the former GMD, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede looking super dapper over the 2 days. The Emir of Kano, who who knew to be a dapper and stylish prince before he became a Royal father, showed that even in his full traditional royal garb, he still knows what’s up as he dazzled in his Christian Louboutin spike shoes. Amechi Okobi and many others who were in attendance like Yutee Rone, Adrianna Sarz, Linda Ikeji, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa and very many others, all looked like fine or should we say pretty peacocks in dazzling array.
The incomparable Asa was on the bandstand to dazzle all comers as the guests over 2 days enjoyed the best of the game of kings.
See their pictures.
More after the break.
