In commemoration of this year’s Children’s Day, Unity Bank Plc hosted students of Kings College, Lagos to promote financial literacy, leadership and advocacy against anti-social behaviour among youths.

During the visit on Friday, the students took a tour around the bank and were educated on digitalisation, cyberbullying and drug abuse, according to a statement.

The Kings College Head Boy, Omohowovo Uyota, performed the role as ‘one-day CEO’ of the bank.

The students were received by the Executive Director, South Bank, Unity Bank, Mr. Temisan Tuedor, on behalf of the Managing Director/Chief Executive, Mrs. Tomi Somefun.

He said the visit afforded the students the opportunity to appreciate financial services offerings and understand the essence of financial literacy.

“We need to catch them young and this has to be demonstrated as we mark the Children’s Day,” he said.

Speaking on drug abuse and cyberbullying, Tuedor urged the students to resolve to say no them.

“Nobody can bully or intimidate you without your consent. Refuse to be inferior and be strong and firm,” he said.

The Assistant Director of Education, Kings College, Mr. Osifala Olaseni, who led the delegation, commended Unity Bank for the initiative and enjoined other corporate organisations to emulate the bank.

“The lessons of this visit are invaluable. Much of the theories we discuss in the classroom have been demonstrated today, and learning could only get better with such exposures,” he said.
