AMCON Celebrates Cultural Diversity Day, Prays for Nigeria at 56


The Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) at the weekend called on well-meaning Nigerians to pray for our leaders to find lasting solution that would help steer the country out of the current economic recession.

The Executive Director, Credit Directorate, Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), Mr. Kola Ayeye, who spoke at the annual AMCON Cultural Diversity Day, which is a day set aside by the corporation to promote the rich cultural heritage in the country, called on Nigerians to be grateful to God for the gift of life and seek his face at this critical period in the country’s economic history.

This year’s edition of the Cultural Diversity Day at the corporation coincided with Nigeria’s 56th Independence day celebration; a development Ayeye said calls for individual and collective prayers for Nigeria.

“We are grateful for our nation, Nigeria; we are grateful for our leaders and it is our collective prayer that you grant the present administration the grace, wisdom and the courage to steer this country out of the current economic hardship,” he noted in his remarks when he flagged off the event in Lagos in company of his counterpart and Executive Director, Operation, Mr. Aminu Ismail.

The Executive Director also said he was impressed with the idea behind the Cultural Diversity Day, which is celebrated by AMCON annually and called for its sustenance as a platform for highlighting the rich cultural heritage of Nigeria and the strength the different ethnic groups share in diversity.
