The Agricultural Development Bank PLC (ADB) has donated foodstuffs including bags of rice and sugar to the National Chief Imam, Dr. Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, and his team of Imams as part of this year’s Ramadan celebration.
Making the donation, the Deputy Managing Director, Alhaji Alhassan Yakubu-Tali indicated that the Bank was making similar donations nationwide as part of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility and to deepen the already cordial business relationship that exist between the Bank and the Muslim Community.
“We have branches in Muslim-dominated areas nationwide, such as Nima, Newtown, Madina, Tema East, Techiman , Nkoranza etc and these branches are well patronized by our brothers and sisters,” he said.
Alhaji Yakubu-Tali called on Muslims to recognize the Bank as their own and patronize the numerous products and services available for both individual and business entities.
“Last year, we came on a similar visit and called for special prayers from His Eminence, The National Chief Imam, for the bank and I am glad to report that in 2021 we made a profit of about 25% higher than the previous year and also grew our asset base from ¢5.7 billion in 2020 to ¢6.4 billion in 2021.”
“On behalf of the Board, Management, and Staff, we wish to thank the National Chief Imam and his team of Imams for the special prayers and like the proverbial Oliver Twist, “we ask for more” prayers for a better 2022 and beyond”, the Deputy MD added.
For his part, the Chief Imam, Dr. Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, expressed gratitude to ADB for its support, praying for more success for the Bank.
The Deputy Managing Director also donated to the Police Mosque in Cantonment, Accra.
