Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, has  urged banks and other financial institutions to de-emphasize profit and partner more with the people for improved socio-economic development in the country.
Okowa made the call on Monday while inaugurating a branch of Premium Trust Bank in Asaba.
The governor who expressed gladness with the establishment of bank in the State, commended the Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Mr Emmanuel Emefiene, for the great feat.
“I am glad to see what I see here today. It is beautiful and I thank God for that. I want to congratulate you today for this great feat and the fourth branch of your bank.
“I also congratulate you, managing director, for the very wonderful name you have given to the bank. I believe it was Holy Spirit-led. I know the kind of person you are and I believe the bank would be of great service to the people and impact lives.
“Banking services are unique; I believe too that as long as it is done in such a mutual relationship with the customers where everybody wins, it is definitely going to be of a great service to the people.
“We need banks to truly partner with the people and not just to make gains from the people, and I hope that your service will be geared in that direction,” he said.
The governor assured that the management of the bank that the people of the state and the State Government would partner the bank.
Earlier, Emefiene while welcoming the people, said that the bank was not just out to do business but also to impact and improve on the lives of the people.
“As a son of the soil, the bank is not just here to do business but also to impact on the people; I know the people and the terrain”
High point of the event was the cutting of the tape to open the bank for business by the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E, A. Adeboye, who was among the special guests at the occasion.
