At a ceremony held at the Campus’s multipurpose hall, the Principal of the college, Dr Philip Kanu described the gesture as first of its kind from a financial institution in Sierra Leone. What makes the donation particularly unique, according to Dr Kanu was the fact that the college has no operational account with the bank. “This is what we refer to as a friend indeed…. they come to help you even when you had not given them anything…” Dr Kanu went on to commend the leadership of Rokel Commercial Bank over what he described as the “jet-speed transformation” of the bank in recent times. He cautioned the students to take good care of the facilities and said the administration would not tolerate any act of indiscipline that would lead to the vandalization of the new structures.    

Rokel Commercial Bank Managing Director, Dr Walton Gilpin was philosophical in his admonition to the students who were left in awe at his superlative oratory skills, “We are setting our footprints in the sands of time…we believe there’s an opportunity for young people in Sierra Leone…you got to excite yourself with the challenge so we can change the story line…everyone has a role to play in life. If you don’t do anything you are missing your mark” Another notable speaker at the ceremony was the Technical Education, Dr Victor Massaquoi who advised the students to use the facilities mainly for academic exercises like mini seminars and a rendezvous for strategic discussions.   

In another development, the Rokel Bank MD was among several distinguished Africans to receive the 2019 African Achievers Awards for Excellence in Banking and Financial Administration in London last week.  The event has consistently honoured great Africans in leadership, young achievers, community builders to captains of industries across the continent. The Awards ceremony has been established as one of the biggest gatherings of influential and global African achievers on the continent. FORBES Magazine has rated the awards as one of the Most Reputable Awards for African achievers across the globe. The award came on the heels of five local awards (Best Brand, Best Employer, Best CEO, and Most Outstanding Professional to two of the bank’s employees, Mariama Jajua and Margaret Davies) from the African Consulting Group last week.
