Lasaco Assurance, an insurance company in Nigeria, has trained students in financial skills to enhance their skills and make them better equipped for the challenges in life.
According to a recent statement, the company has been supporting the development of education in the country for a long time as part of its corporate social responsibility drive.
The latest of its interventions in educational development was its recent support for the rollout of ‘The Compass’, a magazine published by Airforce Secondary School, Shasha, Lagos.
Speaking on the intervention, Razzaq Abiodun, managing director at Lasaco Assurance, said he believed that all corporate organisations must come together to support the government in its quest to take the country out of its depression stories within the school community.
“The government alone cannot do it without the support and cooperation of the corporate community,” he added.
He noted that his company decided to intervene in the education of children because of its central role in getting them well-equipped for leadership roles in the future.
“Education would help them fight ignorance and poverty and set the country on the path to prosperity and growth.”
