It also has external facilities including 100KVA generating plant, 100KVA transformer and borehole and water treatment plant.
“The ICT Center is part of our contribution to your human capital development agenda and education of the people.
“The ICT Centre will serve as a training centre for the good people of Delta State on information technology as well as create employment.
“Over the years, our corporate social responsibility initiatives have been driven by a significant understanding of our socio-economic environment,” Ilegar told the governor.
Uduaghan while commending the management of the bank for the gesture noted that the bank has taken special interest in the development of the state.
He said donation of the ICT Centre has enhanced the state government’s agenda of infrastructural development and human capital development, adding that the administration of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa would build on it.
