In a short presentation ceremony at the NIB Head Office, Patrick Nsiah-Yeboah, Head of Risk Management on behalf of the Managing Director, said the Bank was very honoured and delighted to be associated with such a course.

?Such very significant operations go a long way in transforming the lives of individuals, families, communities and the nation at large,? said Mr Nsiah-Yeboah ?and this goes to reaffirm the bank?s commitment to making every individual?s business, its business.?

Dr Kwame Abrokwaa-Yankyere, Chairperson of the GRAFT Foundation receiving the cheque on behalf of the organization, said he was grateful for the show of concern and support by the Bank and that it would go a long way in bringing hope to the hopeless in these regions.

Mr Nsiah -Yeboah also reiterated that such a donation was just one of the many interventions the bank was putting in place to better the lot of citizens.
