Fidelity Bank, as a purpose-driven financial institution, makes concerted efforts to forge alliances with forward-thinking companies, working together to grow the Nigerian economy.
Just recently, EXCO members of the Bank led by Managing Director/CEO, Mrs. Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe received Mr. Antoine Zammarieh, Managing Director, Allied Food & Confectionery Services Limited (Franchisee of Burger King in Nigeria), who paid a courtesy visit to the bank.
The purpose of Allied Food & Confectionery Services visit was to strengthen client relationship management with a view to creating long-term value. Allied Food and Confectionary Services had recently announced plans to launch and grow the Burger King brand in Nigeria, the largest country in Africa.
Burger King, an American multinational hamburger fast-food chain, is expected to start its operations in Nigeria by the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2021. The company is also expected to employ about 6,000 people (direct and indirect) in the country between 2021 and 2026.
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
