Abuja Printing Communities And Its Environs

In the bid to tighten the security challenge in the Abuja printing communities and its environs, the Abuja Master Printers Leaque (AMPLE) has taken the bull by its horn to donate 10 units of highway solar street lights valued at about three million naira.

According to the Chairman of the association, Mr. Kayode Alonge when asked why Solar Street Lights at this time, he said: “There have been reported cases of attacks within the neighbourhood usually at night when people close from work and are waiting for taxis. The miscreants who hide under the cover of darkness usually take advantage of the rush hours to unleash their mayhem”.

“The UTC/Murg Plaza/Art & Culture Centre neighbourhood is the biggest printing hub in Nigeria next to Shomolu. And there are heavy human and vehicular activities recorded on a daily basis. The main road linking this axis, Awka Street has no functional street lights thereby making members of the community and their visitors more vulnerable, especially at night”. He stated

Mr. Alonge added that the Abuja Master Printers Leaque (AMPLE) identified the security challenge and decided to change the narratives by installing 10 units of highway solar street lights valued at about three million naira.

“AMPLE was officially inaugurated in November 2021. The association is about a year old now and its membership has grown to over sixty CEOs of reputable printing companies.

Apart from offering numerous services to our members, creating a social impact in society is very dear to our hearts. In October 2021, AMPLE had its first corporate social responsibility (CSR) during which over 6000 copies of free exercise books were distributed to pupils of Garki Junior Secondary School, Abuja. We are very excited that we are making a real impact on our community already despite the fact that we are just a year old”. Mr. Alonge emphasized
