Agricultural Development Bank has donated foodstuffs including bags of rice and sugar, among other items to the National Chief Imam, Dr. Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, and his team of Imams as part of the Ramadan celebration.

The donation was done on behalf of the bank by its Deputy Managing Director, Alhaji Alhassan Yakubu-Tali.

Presenting the items, Alhaji Alhassan Yakubu-Tali, said the bank will enhance its performance this year and in subsequent years. This is coming after it recorded about 25% growth in year-on-year profit to ¢81 million in 2021.

“Last year, we came on a similar visit and called for special prayers from His Imminence, for the bank and I am glad to report that the bank in 2021 made a profit of about 25% higher than the previous year and we grew our asset base from ¢5.7 billion in 2020 to ¢6.4 billion in 2021.”
