President Nana Akufo-Addo cutting the tape to commission the new building
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has applauded the contribution of Zenith Bank in deepening financial intermediation in the country.
He said Zenith Bank, a pan-African bank, operates in several places in Africa.
“The bank is among companies that would help bring our continent together, and bring us that integrated, united West Africa and Africa that, I believe, is the platform for the future prosperity of our people,” according to him.
The President made this known on Monday when he commissioned the new headquarters of Zenith Bank at Ridge in Accra.
He noted that “in the example of Jim Ovia, founder of Zenith Bank, we have, first of all, the example of a dynamic entrepreneur, who has built this company, which has gone global. It is in South Africa, England, China and several places in Africa.”
He continued, “The initiative and sense of risk-taking and entrepreneurship that Zenith Bank represents is what, I believe, will drive our country and our continent forward. We need many more Jim Ovias. The more, the merrier.”
President Akufo-Addo also congratulated Zenith Bank for paying attention to the education of the young people.
“This scholarship to Ashesi University is a tremendous initiative, and I applaud him very much for it.”
The President assured the bank of government’s maximum support and wished all those associated with Zenith Bank the best of luck in the coming years.
