NYSC commends ETB on support for arts and culture

The Lagos State Secretariat of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has commended Equitorial Trust Bank for supporting the Service in the promotion of arts and culture among youths in the country.

The Camp Commander of the Lagos NYSC Camp Mr. Ladipo Laniyan who spoke on behalf of the Chapter made the commendation at the closing ceremony of a drama and cultural display competition among platoons in the camp sponsored by ETB and won by Platoon 10.
Mr Laniyan explained that the partnership that exists between the NYSC in Lagos and the bank would be beneficial to both parties as “we will continue to encourage our corp members to start a business relationship with ETB.

He told the audience that the corp members have taken  particular interest in the array of products introduced by the bank especially the Corpers Savings Account and Campus Hype because they are both targeted at students and corpers who remain the main audience at NYSC.
The introduction of these products, he noted, has molded the culture of savings and led to a sharp increase in the number of “our youth who now operate bank accounts unlike before when they saw it an exclusive preserve of the working class”.
