Managing Director of Ecobank Ghana, Mr Daniel Sackey says supporting and participating in this annual event, the Light Up Accra ceremony forms part of its corporate social responsibility to impact the lives of the people within the communities they operate in.
According to him, investing in such an activity which create excitement around the Christmas and New Year festivities is a worthy charitable cause as it also serve as a platform to create awareness about Ecobank’s digital financial solutions deployed to help Ghana’s financial inclusion agenda.
Dr Daniel Kasser Tee, Acting Head, Marketing and Communications, Ecobank Ghana and Anglophone West Africa, speaking on behalf of the Managing Director, said Ecobank has always taken up the key role of providing financial support for events such as the Light Up Accra to remind all Ghanaians how easy banking today has become than expected.
He added that “everyday banking activities, such as opening accounts, making payments, and sending funds to 3rd parties, can all be done remotely just by dialling *770# and following the prompts. Let *770# be your banking tool from today”.
“We do this in the hope of positively impacting the lives of the people that we serve but also use such platforms as the Launchpad to create awareness about our digital financial solutions that are deployed to help Ghana’s financial inclusion agenda. That is why Ecobank has, indeed, always taken up the key role of providing financial support for these events, from inception to date”, he read in the statement.
“As we are well aware, Christmas celebrations in major cities, the world over, are always associated with street lighting, Christmas trees, fireworks, paintings, the show of love and gifting, all done to commemorate the birth of Christ. This is also the time for us to appreciate God the Almighty, for his protection and blessings throughout the year and to pray for many more glorious years ahead”, he added.
The Managing Director of Ecobank Ghana, however, commended all the partners, particularly, the various local assemblies for the wonderful collaboration with private sector entities such as Ecobank to make Ghana join the league of countries where lighting up cities during the festive seasons of Christmas and New Year become normal annual calendar events.
