The Governor equally commended the management of Providus Bank for its commitment to positively impact the banking sector, urged the team to come up with programmes that would bring more financial inclusion to Lagos specifically in the area of access to financial services.

“I urge you, as financial intermediaries, to facilitate the growth of the economy by designing products for the real sector thereby supporting made-in-Nigeria goods. I also urge you to pay special attention to Small and Medium Scale Enterprises because these are the fastest vehicles for job creation and growing new businesses,” Ambode said.
