UniBank Ghana Limited is to open five additional branches before the end of the year.
The new branches are to be opened in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, Darkuman in the Greater Accra Region, and Volta, Upper East and Upper West regions.
The five new branches will bring to 25 the total number of branches and networks that the bank operates nationwide.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of uniBank, Mr Felix Nyarko-Pong, disclosed this in Accra, days after the bank started a deposit promotion aimed at rewarding loyal customers.
The promotion, dubbed ‘Dream and Drive Promo’, requires customers to deposit at least GH¢200 and/or maintain GH¢1,000 in their accounts for a month to stand the chance of winning some of the over 70 prizes currently at stake.
It also has the 2013 edition of the Range Rover Evoque as the ultimate prize in addition to cash and other consolation prizes for customers who participate. The promotion will run from now till November 6, within which time customers would have the opportunity to participate.
In addition to the final draw, which will determine the final three winners, the promotion will feature two other draws to be held in Tamale in the Northern Region and in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The CEO said at the launch that it was uniBank’s way of showing appreciation to its customers for their support for the 13 years of its existence.
Given that patronage of uniBank’s services has been on a steady rise, Mr Nyarko-Pong said there was the need to expand the branch network to make it easier for people to access its services, especially in areas it currently do not operate from.
“That is why we want to add five additional branches before the end of this year,” he said.
uniBank started operations in 2000 and had since achieved numerous laurels in and outside the country.
The bank’s total deposits is currently above GH¢1 billion, according to its MD, and indications are that the on-going promotion and the branch expansion drive will help increase customer deposits in the coming years.
