Unity Bank Plc has taken a significant step towards enhancing financial literacy in Nigeria by conducting educational sessions in 15 schools across the country’s geopolitical zones. This initiative was part of the 2024 Global Money Week celebrations.

Aiming to foster financial inclusion, the sessions were aligned with the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers Committee’s strategic objectives.

Represented by the bank’s Chief Compliance Officer, Mrs. Patricia Ahunanya, Mrs. Somefun imparted crucial knowledge on wealth creation strategies to the students. The focus was on cultivating savings habits, smart investment practices, and early adoption of money management skills.

The engagement was designed to instill a sense of financial discipline and equip students with the necessary skills to achieve financial independence and security. It also aimed to nurture a culture of saving and investing among the youth. In recognition of their achievements, Mrs. Somefun honored exemplary students with awards during the event.
