From Enugu to Ekiti States, Lagos to the Federal Capital Territory, Traffic Wardens across the country are being surprised at their duty posts with Orange Sacks of gifts provided and delivered by foremost financial institution, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc. The gifts, which include items for the festive season and beyond, were provided by the Bank as part of its #NominateAChamp Campaign.
The #NominateAChamp Campaign was created by GTBank to celebrate the selfless service of ordinary Nigerians who go beyond the call of duty to keep our roads safe and hassle-free. As part of the NominateAChamp campaigned, the bank called on members of the general public to nominate Traffic Wardens who have touched their hearts this year with their selfless service.
