UMB CEO(middle) with the Yaa-Naa at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi

Customers of Universal Merchant Bank (UMB) in the Northern Region were pleasantly surprised during this year’s Eid festivities, as the CEO of the Bank joined the celebrations in person. 

Accompanied by the Bank’s senior executives, Nana Dwemoh Benneh, the CEO, visited key customers wishing them Eid Mubarak and compliments of the season.

A significant part of these engagements included a courtesy call on the overlord of Dagbon, Yaa-Naa Abubakari Mahama II. 

Nana Dwemoh presented items to the Yaa-Naa’s court towards the celebrations and formally announce his appointment as CEO of the Bank.

Nana Dwemoh Benneh noted, “We take great pride in our heritage as a Ghanaian bank. We believe that this heritage denotes world-class, and we constantly strive to bring it to life.

“The key to this is integrating into the lives of the most important part of our business – the Customer! Also, as a Ghanaian bank, we celebrate our culture, and thus there is no way we can be in Dagbon for the Eid and not pay our respects and ask for the blessings of the Yaa-Naa”.

The Yaa-Naa expressed his deepest appreciation for the visit and the items donated toward the Eid celebrations at the Gbewaa Palace.

Speaking through his PRO, he noted, “We in Dagbon and Ghana have to be proud of our own. UMB has been serving us well here in the Northern Region, and I pray for Allah to guide the steps of the new CEO to achieve greater successes.”

 The Yaa-Naa further admonished the people of Dagbon and Ghana to select Ghanaian banks to support the indigenisation agenda of the government.
