African Alliance Insurance Plc., has pledged to support Headfort Foundation, a Lagos-based not-for-profit Legal Aid and Advocacy initiative.
A statement by the firm’s Brand, Media and Communications Manager, Bankole Banjo, stated that the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, African Alliance Insurance Plc., Funmi Omo, while addressing the Headfort team during a visit to her office in Lagos, expressed delight at the strides young Nigerians especially women are taking in today’s world.
“We believe the society would be better if we had more sincere, private sector initiatives like these to support government efforts. As a business, we believe every man can only fulfil potentials when given a fair chance. Seeing a team of young Nigerians like these think up and execute such a noble initiative is heart-warming and in our little way, we would see how we can support Headfort Foundation in its quest to ensure indigent inmates get access to quality legal representation and a new chance at making the most of their lives,” she said.
The convener, Headfort Foundation, Yemi Orija, while thanking the MD/CEO for her time and kind words, traced her decision to set up the Foundation to her first-hand encounters with various indigent people who end up in custody because they could not afford legal representation.
