First City Monument Bank (FCMB) has donated an 18-seater bus to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi, as part of its corporate social responsibility to aid staff and students movement.

FCMB zonal head in Bauchi, Alhaji Tata Umar, who on behalf of the bank made the presentation, noted that FCMB has for long been dealing with the university, hence the need to support the institution.

Umar recalled that the university was the bank’s long term partner of over 27 years and it is only now that FCMB is waking to its responsibility.

He explained that this will be the beginning of a long-term relationship with the university, as they have a lot of packages in stock for the school.

ATBU Vice Chancellor, Prof Saminu Ibrahim, while receiving keys to the bus, commended the bold initiative of FCMB and called on other partners of the university to follow the bank’s footsteps.
