The Chairman, UBA, Mr Tony Elumelu, said at the bank’s annual general meeting in April this year that the group was set to change the narrative of banking and would thus strengthen the earnings growth trajectory through its positive contribution in all the countries where it operates.
He had said, “We are optimistic about the policy environment in most African economies where we operate as we expect the diligent implementation of fiscal policies to help stimulate inclusive economic growth, ease macro pressures and lower the cost of doing business.
“I am very optimistic that we will sustain the strong growth trajectory, as we continue to gain market share across Africa, leveraging our core values of enterprise, excellence and execution.”
