One Bank, a digital product of Sterling Bank Plc, has said it will celebrate and eulogise 250 Nigerian workers every week through its ‘One Professional’ initiative as a way of appreciating their tenacity and contribution to nation-building.
Group Head of Digital Banking at Sterling Bank, Oladipo Alabede, who disclosed this in a statement made available to The Tide source, said Nigerian workers deserved reward for their tenacity and contributions to the growth of the economy.
He said: “No nation can boast of tremendous progress or enjoy significant growth without a diligent, empowered and excited workforce. Over the years, Nigerian professionals have made giant strides across various industries like medicine, engineering and law, to mention but a few.”
The ‘One Professional’, he explained, is Sterling Bank’s way of amplifying the success stories of Nigerian workers while appreciating them. He explained that the initiative would give an opportunity to Nigerian workers to share stories of how they found themselves in their chosen careers.
“These stories will help inspire younger generations to make even better decisions while learning from mistakes made and lessons shared by others,” Alabede said.
He said Nigerian professionals would be provided with the opportunity to share inspirational stories of how they ventured into their various fields of endeavors every month throughout the year.
According to him, Nigerian workers stand a chance to win cash prizes from One Bank when they go ahead to download the One Bank app on Google and Play store and open an account.
He said the mechanics of the initiative was for a worker, who is a potential customer of the bank, to create a One Bank account, select sector/profession as part of the account opening requirement and complete the account opening process.

Ajiola, an International SMEs business consultant, said, “the money would pass through the Federal Government their duty is to acknowledge the receipt of funds at the entry of such grants like Supreme, Theoberth, SEM, New Era, King David to mention but few, as we have more than 25 Grants opportunities in  Nigeria for its citizens.
“Their major role is to verify if it was Stolen, or from Drugs Proceeds or with embargo.
“They also have to verify the sincere objectives of giving such Grant to Nigeria/Nigerians before it can be accepted and warehoused in CBN for further verifications, clarification before final approval by the President through CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele if there is any contrary finding by the Federal Government, the grant shall be Rejected and returned to the donors.
“Major Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs) like Supreme Family Entertainment International Initiative are the ones that take all the trouble to solicit for the grants and the beneficiaries”, he said.
He urged the members and the business public to always develop strong patience to scale the hurdle of grant which cannot be compared to the speed of getting a loan that would be paid with interest.
The iEBS Matrixx Co-operative boss who is a United Nations Eminent Peace Ambassador explained that, “It’s all these procedures that cause the delay which inturn result to aggravated, aggressive agitations of the beneficiaries when NGOs announce the entry of their grants to Nigerians.
