ACCESS BANK on Friday commissioned a new agency banking network at the Accra Technical University (ATU) in Accra.
This is in line with the bank’s vision of becoming the world’s most respected African bank through strategic expansion and retail dominance.
Through this expansion drive, Access Bank says it has brought banking operations close to the doorsteps of the student community and surrounding vicinity.
The ATU Agency brings to five, the number of the bank’s agency networks and the fourth of its physical presence in tertiary institutions.
Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, Olumide Olatunji, intimated that the launch of the ATU agency will further deepen the bank’s financial inclusion agenda and play a facilitating role in improving the banking experience of students on campus.
Executive Director for Retail and Digital Banking, Pearl Nkrumah, noted that banking was not only about where one did a transaction but the experiences that came with the transactions. She said Access Bank Ghana offered unique experience that customers need through the provision of innovative banking solutions.
“This is another opportunity to bring best-in-class banking products and services to the doorsteps of students right here on your campus and indeed, the public,” she said.
Vice Chancellor of ATU, Prof Samuel Nii Odai, shared his excitement at the opening of the new banking facility. He said Access Bank has remained committed to its promise of establishing a physical presence at the university. He revealed that, many banks were contacted to help solve the problem of fee collection, but Access Bank has been one of the banks that responded to the call.
He was optimistic that students will take the opportunity to open personal accounts and begin their future banking experience with Access Bank.
Chief Operations Officer of Access Bank, Ade Ologun, expressed the hope that the entire ATU community will take advantage of the facility.
