OmniBank has donated GHC 50,000.00 to the Ghana @ 60 Committee towards the celebration of Ghana’s independence.
According to the company, the gesture is an extension of its contribution towards the development of the country, which is in line with OmniBank’s Corporate Social Responsibility themed ‘Growing Communities’.
Speaking to Citi Business News, after the donation the Managing Director of OmniBank, Philip Oti-Mensah expressed the bank’s desire to be part of the moment, hence the donation.
“We embrace the theme for the Ghana at 60 celebration, ‘Mobilizing for Ghana’s future “, which is in line with the bank’s mission of mobilizing deposits and growing further with our strategy to acquire 1 million customer accounts and reach three billion cedis in deposits by 2020,” he said.
Calling on government to put in fiscal measures to stabilize the economy, Mr. Oti-Mensah stated it is important to get interest rates down to reduce the cost of doing business.
“As we mobilize for the future, making the micro economy stable should be another important issue the government must be concerned with,” he said.
OmniBank is a Ghanaian owned Bank with a long history. The bank started as a savings and Loans Company in 1989, but in 2013, the new shareholders decided to restructure and grow the company into a fully-fledged bank to focus on developing Ghanaian entrepreneurs.
Thus the bank identifies itself with the struggles of the everyday Ghanaian and the hope of a better future for all.
