He noted that although the industry appeared to be crowded, they are in the industry to impact lives and communities with quality services that will be delivered in record time.

“We have a vision to become the number one digital Bank in Nigeria before the end of this year. We are building some serious app that will transform the industry within a very short time. A lot of work has gone into it. It’s going to provide a lot of solutions and answers to a lot of the banking needs that people would want to ask and especially in this period where we are going cashless.

We are passionate with what we do, we look at our customers’ needs, we understand them and then we deliver solutions that will address the needs and deliver them in a timely manner.

Speaking at the event, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye was unhappy with financial institutions in the Camp that carry out business activities and have not contributed meaningfully to their host community even though they make profits from the same community.

The cleric stated, “This is a bank that thinks of impacting society even before they begin to operate. We have several banks represented in this Camp, some of them have been around for years and have not contributed anything to what’s going on in the camp. I remember a couple of years ago, I had to say, write to these people. You are here, you are doing business here.

“You won’t be here if you are not making profits, you have never even said what can we do, what part can we play? Can we make any contribution during the Congress, Convention. Let them know we are not begging; we’ve been surviving without them. And here comes a bank and already on the first day already committed to even tar a road. How can such a bank fail? It then means that the One who has never fails will support this Bank.”

While he prayed for the progress and prosperity of the bank, the General Overseer announced that he was going to open an account the same day.
