The management of the financial institution pledged to continuously do its best to support and actively participate in the tourism industry.
Speaking, Sterling Bank Tourism Business Manager, Mrs Abiola Adelana, said that, working hard and striving for the best at all times, will always birth massive success.
According to her; “If it is worth doing, it is worth doing right. If you don’t do your best, two things can happen—one, you have to go back and do it; and two, if you don’t go back and do it, you are shortchanging yourself and those you are trying to help. By doing your best and striving for excellence, you will greatly exceed all of your expectations.”
She said with several partnerships, as it concerns Tourism, Sterling Bank hopes to drive an appreciation as well as the investment opportunities available in the arts and tourism sectors in Nigeria.
Adelana further appreciated the ITPN, stakeholders and the entire management of Sterling Bank, led by Mr Abubakar Suleiman for his support and passion for Tourism.
