Union Bank of Nigeria Plc has reiterated its commitment to support the growth of Nigerian businesses.

This announcement was made by the lender’s Chief Executive Officer, Emeka Emuwa, during a customer engagement forum, which held recently in Onitsha, Anambra State with leading businessmen and women in the state.

 The CEO was joined at the forum by other executive directors of the bank including Emeka Okonkwo, the head of Corporate and Investment Banking; and Adekunle Sonola, the head of Commercial Banking as well as the divisional executive for the region, Rosemary David-Etim.

 In a statement, the bank said the forum was a platform for interactive discussions with customers and stakeholders in the state, adding that the development was in line with the bank’s commitment to engage its customers and better understand their unique requirements.

 Emuwa explained that the organisation of the forum stemmed from the need to re-introduce customers and stakeholders to the ‘new Union Bank’ which had emerged following a full-scale transformation process initiated in 2015.

He said, “Following our rigorous transformation programme, we are now better positioned to deliver on our promise to be a trusted financial partner. We remain dedicated to the success of our customers and assure you of our consistent efforts towards the provision of simpler, smarter banking services that help our customers succeed.”
