The National Investment Bank donated GHC185,000.00 to the COVID-19 National Trust Fund as the bank’s contribution to support the national effort to fight the spread and adverse impacts of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Ghanaians. Mr. Samuel Sarpong, Managing Director (MD) of NIB, remarked that the NIB’s contribution would enable government to roll out its COVID-19 eradication strategy and address the welfare needs of the most vulnerable who are impacted by lockdown restrictions.
The donated funds were mobilized from individual contributions by the Board of Directors, management and staff of the Bank who were jointly committed to support the broader effort to bring some relief to people in need in these very difficult times. Managing Director Sarpong recalled that, in its capacity as a corporate entity, NIB had previously contributed GHC10 million to the COVID-19 Response Fund established by the Ghana Association of Bankers.
Justice Sophia Akuffo (retd), immediate past Chief Justice and Chairperson of the COVID-19 Board of Trustees, expressed profound gratitude to NIB board, management and staff for their generosity. Justice Akuffo commended NIB for being one of the most reliable and trusted indigenous banks in Ghana.
Key witnesses at the giving event in Accra included Deputy Managing Director of NIB Mr. Tweneboa Kodua Fokuo, President of the Professional and Managerial Staff Union of NIB Mr. Michael Naah Davies and Personal Assistant to the Managing Director Ms. Mary Ofori.
