The Bank commenced Saturday banking many years ago with 13 branches.
“The expansion of the bank’s Saturday Banking was in response to new business opportunities and the wish of management to satisfy the banks customers across the country.
“We want to ensure that both our existing and prospective customers enjoy the best banking services at all times hence our decision to increase the number from the present 13 to 56,” the statement quoted Mr Daniel Asiedu, the Managing Director, as saying.
