Access Bank charges students on future plans

he Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, Olumide Olatunji, has encouraged new graduates at the Colleges of Health Sciences and Basic & Applied Sciences, University of Ghana (UG), to plan a future for themselves that is ambitious and attainable.

He was addressing graduates at the convocation ceremony of both colleges held at the Cedi Conference Centre of the Department of Economics, UG.

In his address, Olatunji admonished the graduates not to take for granted what a good life vision can propel them to achieve.

Citing the remarkable growth story of Access Bank Group, he intimated that nothing was out of reach for the graduates if they plan for their future, form meaningful friendships that can inspire and also prepare for failures, as it is inevitable in life’s journey.

He said: “As today’s millennial, your role is critical to national development. You find yourselves in a unique period in history, where unlike many decades ago, you have the opportunity to change the narrative or perception about Ghana or Africa, by creating great stories for yourselves in your line of work.”

Olumide also took the opportunity to applaud the University of Ghana for producing some of the brilliant professionals in Ghana today, serving various industries including banking.

He noted that some of the graduates produced by the university had always excelled at the Access Bank Banking School for Excellence in Lagos, Nigeria where fresh graduates from all the bank’s African subsidiaries receive a four-month intensive training on rudiments of banking.

“Year-on -year, Ghanaian graduates come out tops and this is something worth celebrating, he concluded.

Over the years, Access Bank has demonstrated a strong commitment towards education through its investments and business practices.

Its award-winning Banking School of Excellence has since 2010 trained over 294 fresh Ghanaian graduates, helping to build a sustainable talent pipeline for the banking industry.
