In line with her Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, one of the notable marketing communications companies in Nigeria, Verdant Zeal Marketing Communications Ltd, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a non-governmental Organisation, Nigeria Society for the Blind (NSB), as a means of harnessing and fostering her commitment to the NGO.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, which took place at the conference room of Verdant Zeal Communication Ltd (VZ) recently, the Group Chief Executive Officer, Verdant Zeal Communications Ltd., Tunji Olugbodi, said the event was a right step towards greater heights for the NGO and promised his company's support and commitment towards the organisation.
Olugbodi said the relationship with NSB would have Verdant Zeal provide free marketing communication services to the association and also provide speaking opportunities for the association leadership at relevant events and public functions organised by Verdant Zeal where NSB would have the opportunity to enlighten the public about the association's needs and objectives.
Expressing the NSB appreciation for the promised support from Verdant Zeal, the Administrator and Chairman of NSB, Mrs. Abiola Agbaje, stated that the association had for several years sought support like the one Verdant Zeal is offering to them.
Speaking on the organisation's activities, the Executive Director, NSB, Mr. Yinka Akande, said that as part of its new communications campaign, the group would in the second quarter of this year unveil its new logo.
While expressing appreciation to the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), for donating a state-of-the-art recording centre to the group, Agbaje called on well meaning Nigerians and corporate organisations to come to the aid of the group.
The Nigeria Society for the Blind is a voluntary, non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation established in 1955 under the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Adetokunbo Ademola, with the main objective of training and giving hope to visually handicapped in Nigeria through its Vocational Training Centre (VTC).
