In the same strain, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Bank asserted, "We affirm our commitment to developing products that contribute to the general well-being of the society in which we operate. It is also part of the new direction of Fidelity Bank that is anchored on innovation. At Fidelity Bank, we are not in business to follow the crowd and that is the essence of this initiative. We are aware that some are out of school, not because they are not intelligent or lack of will to go to school, but the challenges of costs of bills associated with school."

This promo is our unique contribution to the development of education which is the most basic of human aspiration.” “The Fidelity promo is a unique one. We shall be giving out scholarship packages and gift items to support the educational aspiration of our customers. When we are talking about education we are talking about everythingcatering school, university, polytechnic, apprenticeship etc," she added.
