Managing Director /Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, had addressed the sport as a determinant factor in youth growth.

Okonkwo declared this at the closing ceremony of the Anambra State U13/U17 Academicals which took place at St. Mary’s High School, Ifitedunu, Anambra State at the weekend.

He revealed that Fidelity is happy to partner with the state as a way of giving back to the society, stressing that through the initiative the bank also intends to curb youth restiveness by engaging them meaningfully.

“Since sport is a very strong element in youth development, we felt we needed to partner with the state to make sure we get this competition going strongly. You can see what happened here today and I think that it was really an international standard show they put up. We are proud to have supported that and we are looking forward to continuing this support,” he said.
