Calabar, Nigeria; October 4, 2012: Nigeria’s Leading mobile operator, Airtel Networks Limited, has been commended by His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Cross River State, Senator Liyel Imoke, for adopting a rural primary school in the state.

The governor, who was speaking, when a team of Airtel executives led by the Managing Director & CEO, Mr. Rajan Swaroop, paid him a courtesy visit in Calabar yesterday, stated that Airtel’s gesture was in line with the state’s vision to provide education to the poorest of the poor in rural communities of the state.

Imoke who was represented by the Honorable Commissioner for Education, Professor Offiong E. Offiong, praised the initiative of Airtel Nigeria to adopt a school in the state unsolicited, which clearly underlines the telco’s commitment to giving back to the community through its visionary Corporate Social responsibility programme.

He explained that indeed latest statistics indicate that about two percent of the state’s population has no access to education, adding that Airtel’s gesture has increased the opportunities available to the people of the state to benefit from modern education in pursuit of the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG)
