Zenith Bank Embraces Christmas Season by Illuminating Ajose Adeogun Street

Zenith Bank welcomed the festive spirit by lighting up Ajose Adeogun Street and Roundabout in Victoria Island, Lagos.

He highlighted the hope for peace in homes, businesses, and the nation, activating the Christmas spirit with the illumination alongside Mrs. Kay Ovia, the wife of the bank’s Founder and Chairman.
