Speaking at the colorful ceremony, Dr Bawumia congratulated them for being in existence for the past 69 years. He says the opening was a historic and exciting moment for the people as it also marked the first-ever commercial bank in Nalerigu and its adjoining communities.
The new bank will offer petty traders and farmers in and around communities in Nalerigu closer access to financial inclusion and solutions, which hitherto, were far from their reach.
‘’ This was what the government envisaged when we decided to create six more regions to decentralise and quicken the rate of development for excluded communities’’ he stated.
It is refreshing to note that many communities in the newly created regions are having access to services which previously eluded them and also receiving their fair share of national infrastructure development.
