With our strategic spread in 19 of the most vibrant countries on the continent, we are indeed part and parcel of the African progress story” Kennedy Uzoka, DMD and CEO, UBA Africa stated in an internal communication mail sent to the bank’s staff worldwide.

“A silver lining is spreading hope and optimism across the continent.” DMD had stated in his internal communication staff. 

He noted that “The economic potential of the continent has indeed become a magnet for foreign investors with annual foreign investment inflow increasing by more than five-fold since year 2000 ( UNDP and AfDB)”

While explaining that “UBA is now one of the biggest employers of labour and provider of relevant financial solutions to help build the Africa of our dream, the DMD acknowledged that “we are still serving only a fraction of our potential African market noting the bank’s over seven million customers make up just only a few of Africa’s slightly more than a billion population of which an estimated 128 million earn in excess of $5,000 as annual income which shows the potential for growth as Africa’s Global Bank.
