Airtel Nigeria adopt-a-school- Programme has landed in Edo State with donation of educational materials to pupils of Uchi Primary School, Auchi, Edo State.

Speaking during the donation, Anto commended Airtel for its kind gesture, describing the support as “a contribution towards securing a better future for the leaders of tomorrow”.
Also speaking during the presentation, Ali Abdullatif, a pupil, thanked Airtel and Anto for their contributions, noting that the donated materials will further help improve academic performance of the school.
On Day 73 of Big Brother Naija show, housemates were tasked to perform a selfless act of kindness towards one another.
Divided in pairs, Big Brother instructed the head of house to nominate four housemates who were natural born leaders. The nominated leaders were in turn asked to select their least favorite housemate as their partners during the challenge. This resulted in the following pairs: Tobi and Khloe; Lolu and Nina; Miracle and Alex; Anto and Cee-C.
A football match was organized in the BBNaija house, each housemate was instructed by Big Brother to nominate a government primary school in their neighborhood to be sponsored by Airtel Nigeria. Housemates were encouraged to score as many goals as possible, and each goal scored, is equivalent to N 100, 000 donations in educational materials to the nominated schools.
The ladies, however, performed better than the male housemates; Alex, Cee-C and Nina scored one goal each while Khloe matched Lolu’s two goals. At the end of the task, a total of N800, 000 was realized from the task.
For the final task, housemates were required to work individually to deliver a pitch centered on the importance of education for all. Anto beat all other housemates and emerged winner of the challenge with her pitch titled “No child left behind”.
With a collective effort of all housemates, Anto, the winner of the challenge got the opportunity to donate N800,000 in educational materials and books to Uchi Primary School in Edo State.
