On Thursday the 19th of May 2017, Prof. Franca Anijaobi-Idem, Dean - Faculty of Education, Akwa Ibom State University received in audience the management team of Zenith Bank Plc Eket who were in the institution on a Courtesy call. The visit was led by the Branch Manager, Mr Calistus C. Onu.

The Branch Manager said that they were in the Institution on a "Retail-Storm"; a marketing strategy whereby they could get a sizeable number of students to open account with Zenith Bank before they get into the world of work as potential employees and entrepreneurs. He thanked the Dean for giving them unhindered access to the students each time they visited and commended the Vice-Chancellor for the new look the University is wearing as well as the giant and amazing strides the institution has recorded thus far.

Also speaking during the visit, the Deputy Manager, Mrs Ndifreke Gomina explained that Zenith Bank was  positioning itself to partner more with Akwa Ibom State University. She said that their mission was specifically to create the necessary awareness among  students on the need to open individual accounts with Zenith Bank so that when they graduate and get employed, they will not leave the Bank. She thanked the Dean for the warm reception accorded them.             
                   

Responding , the Dean thanked them for coming and said that Zenith has been her Bank for several years. She  particularly commended the efforts of the Senior Asst. Manager, Mr Okey Ezeasouba who has been coming to the school to market  and showcase their product to her Staff and students.  Her words: "he is processing 3 accounts for  us with Zenith Bank as I speak - the Faculty Dues Account, the Department Dues Account and Education Students Dues Account".

Prof. Anijaobi-Idem promised to invite them when students were back for the Second Semester during their Faculty In-House Seminar to talk and interact with the students. The Dean  appreciated their observations of the progress in the University and said that the  Vice-Chancellor was doing everything possible to improve the quality and standard of teaching and learning in Akwa Ibom State University.
