Some Muslim clients at the event
Barclays Bank Ghana has held IFTAR, an evening meal to end the daily Ramadan fasting for some of its Muslim clients at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.
The event, which started after short Islamic prayers, was attended by high-profile Muslim clerics and persons who are clients of Barclays Bank.
Ramadan, which takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a period for fasting and piety by Muslims.
In a speech, Corporate Banking Director at Barclays Bank, Ellen Ohene-Afoakwa, commended the clients for their support and loyalty to the bank over the years.
She reiterated the bank’s commitment to supporting the growth of their businesses.
“I am especially proud to note that for some of you, we have worked together and supported your companies to grow into the budding businesses serving millions of Ghanaians. Now that’s what true partnership is all about, and we are committed to go the extra mile with you,” she affirmed.
Touching on the transitioning from Barclays to ABSA, Mrs Ohene-Afoakwa indicated that the bank remains committed to providing clients with the best service, best products, digital innovations and increased flexibility among others.
“Our new brand and new identity reflects our larger, shared purpose of ‘bringing your possibilities to life. We are excited about the opportunity that this change brings as part of our journey towards becoming a truly transformative bank that is modern, fast-thinking and relevant for the future,” she added.
