Jim Baiden, Deputy MD of Fidelity Bank addresses the gathering
Fidelity Bank Ghana Limited has inaugurated another branch at the Cargo Village, near the Kotoka International Airport, Accra.
The financial institution currently has a total of 51 branches in the country.
At a brief commissioning ceremony last Wednesday, the Deputy Managing Director of the Bank Jim Baiden announced that the bank was committed to increasing its share of deposits and assets through its expanded network of branches.
‘Fidelity has positioned itself to be the preferred bank; it is therefore our vision to have a branch or an Agent Point in every community. That is why we are embarking on a financial inclusion agenda to bring on board the under-banked and unbanked into the formal banking sector,’ he said.
Mr. Baiden said the bank was determined to inculcate in Ghanaians the habit of savings, adding ‘this would be possible as banking becomes convenient such that they can walk into a pharmacy shop, grocery shop and supermarkets apart from our traditional branches to transact their banking services.
‘We are therefore asking everybody to look out for Fidelity Agent Point in their localities where they can open an account and do their normal banking business.’
He encouraged businesses and individuals, especially those close to the Cargo Village, to endeavour to do business with the bank.
Present at the event were dignitaries, including Abdullai Alhassan, Deputy Director-General, Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), David Adu-Bediako, Senior Marketing Officer, Ghana Airports Company Limited, Directors of AFGO, as well as directors of the bank.
In a related development, Fidelity Bank has commissioned its 76 th Automated Teller Machine (ATM) at the forecourt of the Hope Presbyterian Church at Sakumono to serve the church and the entire community.
