Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo

Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has praised the contributions of Zenith Bank to the Ghanaian financial services sector.

Describing the bank as a ‘truly pan-African bank’ with presence in several countries on the continent, he said that Africa needs institutions like Zenith Bank to bring about a united West Africa and Africa, that will engender future prosperity of its people and the continent.

He spoke while commissioning the new Head Office complex of Zenith Bank Ghana, at Ridge, Accra, Ghana.

He said the initiative and sense of risk-taking and entrepreneurship that Zenith Bank represents is what will drive Ghana and the continent to prosperity, economic interdependence and sustainability.

He added that for the economic renaissance we seek, “we need many more Jim Ovia” on the continent to leapfrog enterprise and entrepreneurship.

President Akufo-Addo also commended the bank for paying attention to another important aspect of Ghana’s development – education of young people – through its $2 million dollars educational support. He described the initiative as tremendous and applauded Jim Ovia for his characteristic kind gesture.

Founder/Group Chairman of Zenith Bank Jim Ovia observed that the decision by the leadership of the bank to invest in Ghana is well thought-through considering Ghana is an emerging economic superpower in the sub-region and a very viable and virile entity.
