Diamond Bank support Lagos Black Heritage Festival

Diamond Bank has expressed its willingness to partner with the Lagos Black Heritage Festival because it will afford it the opportunity to collaborate with the Lagos State Government to celebrate children in a bid to project the nation’s cultural heritage to the world.

Mr. Uzoma Dozie, Executive Director, Corporate Banking and Lagos/West Businesses disclosed this in Lagos on Thursday at a press conference to declare open registration for the 2013 edition of the festival.

He said, “We are especially proud to be sponsors of the Vision of the Child as the   painting competition creates an avenue for the kids to display their passion for the arts thus engaging their youthful energy in a creative endeavour,” remarking that ‘passion’ happens to one of the core values of the bank and this it channels into service delivery.

Mr. Femi Segun, a representative of the Lagos Black Heritage Festival said the 2013 painting contest intends to build on the success of the 2012 edition and is exclusively sponsored by Diamond Bank Plc.

In the same vein Mrs. Ayona Trimnell, Head of Corporate Communications of Diamond Bank said they would continue to support the vision of the festival.

The 2013 Lagos Black Heritage Festival is being organised in collaboration with the Lagos State Ministry of Education. The competition is open to primary and secondary (public and private) schools in Lagos State.
