The five upgraded branches of the bank unveiled are located at Douglas road and Port Harcourt road both in Owerri; Bank Road Orlu, Okigwe road, Owerri and Union Bank at Ogbor Oboama Ezinihite branch in Aboh Mbaise.
Speaking at the event, the bank’s Transformation Director, Joe Mbulu, was quoted to have called on customers to partner the bank in utilising the e-banking platforms.

Assuring customers of fast, secure and convenient banking services, Mbulu said, “these e-banking platforms were created to make banking simpler and smarter for customers to ensure that they have more time to engage in those things that matter most to them.”

On his part, the Executive Director, Corporate Banking, Emeka Okonkwo, said the bank’s new outlook would afford customers quality, reliable, secured and effective services.

“We are here to formerly unveil our newly upgraded branches, which is part of our transformation journey. The journey started two years ago and we want to assure our customers that we are a simpler and smarter bank.

“We have refurbished over 60 branches across the country and a lot has gone into the innovative propositions we are offering. The transformation of the bank is a response to customers’ desire and the bank’s commitment to serve its customers better,” he added.
