For the Highway Managers in Lagos, it was all smiles on the 26th of October as they received a friendly visit from members of Cycology Riding Club, sponsored by Allianz Nigeria Insurance plc.
“This group of people risk their lives on a daily basis to keep our roads clean, the least we can do is to support this kind of initiative that appreciates what they do” commented Bolade Odanye, Sponsorship and Events Manager. He further disclosed that Allianz Nigeria intends to collaborate with other organizations in order to create awareness on the need to ensure the safe use of roads among all road users.
Close to 100 highway managers were recipients of this charitable exercise which included the donation of bags and cash gifts. “We feel honoured to be part of such a noble initiative that rewards our highway cleaners who work hard to keep our roads clean and safe for motorists and other road users” mentioned Walter Bossman, Marketing Director at Allianz Nigeria.
