Nigeria: Firstbank Organises Sustainable Financial Strategy Workshop for NGOs

First Bank of Nigeria Limited through its Sustainability initiative, FirstBank Sustainability Centre, in partnership with the Lagos Business School, is set to host a Sustainable Financial Strategy Workshop for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
