Speaking at the end of the walk in Aburi, Managing Director of FBNBank Ghana Limited, Gbenga Odeyemi said, “as a brand that puts its stakeholders at the heart of its business, the 125km relay walk was to celebrate the brand’s unbroken business operations for 125 years and the bank’s commitment to service excellence.”
