Ikeja Electric Holds Safety Sensitization in Primary Schools to Mark Children’s Day

Ikeja Electric Holds Safety Sensitization in Primary Schools to Mark Children’s Day

Leading Nigerian Electricity Distribution Company, Ikeja Electric (IE) has joined the nation at large to commemorate the 2017 Children’s Day, by visiting several primary schools within its network to create awareness on electricity safety.

As a socially responsible corporate entity, Ikeja Electric identified the need to teach kids from an early age, the importance of safety with regards to electrical equipment and appliances and chose the Children’s Day celebration as a platform to do so. Speaking on the initiative, the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, noted that “habits you pick as a child tend to stick with you through life, as such by teaching the kids how to maintain their safety around electricity, they are learning important life-long safety skills”.

The safety awareness campaign took place in Ilupeju Primary School, Ilupeju; Muslim Primary School, Etunrenren, Ikorodu; Local Government Primary School 1, Alagbado; Local Government Primary School 1, Ijegun and Zumratul Islamayah II Primary School, Akute, all within IE’s network.

While commending the company on the campaign, Mrs. Evelyn Omokhaiye, Head Teacher, Ilupeju Primary School, expressed her delight at the useful tips the children learnt about staying safe around electricity. She said the tips were not only beneficial to the children but also to the adults present, noting that everyone needs to express necessary caution with electricity.

Omokhaiye thanked Ikeja Electric for embarking on a worthy cause that equipped the kids with knowledge that could be lifesaving in certain situations and encouraged the company not to relent on its commitment.

The pupils at Zumratul Islamayah Primary School, Akute were no less delighted and they promised to share all their learnings with their family and friends when they got back home. The sentiment was similar across all the schools we visited.

Speaking further, Ofulue said that Ikeja Electric will continue to play its part in giving back to the communities in which it operates by undertaking meaningful initiatives that will better the lives of the residents of these communities. In the recent past, the company have embarked on several CSR initiatives including donation of mosquito nets to communities during the recent World Malaria Day celebration and oral hygiene health in selected primary schools.  All these initiatives are in line with Ikeja Electric’s Personal Corporate Social Responsibility P-CSR plan.
