Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has restated his administration’s commitment towards providing infrastructure and ensuring ease of doing business for local and foreign investors.
Ambode, who stated this at the official commissioning of new digital branch of Access Bank at Epe, Lagos, also commended the board and management of the bank for its drive to extend financial inclusion to Epe.
“For us in Lagos State, we will continue to provide infrastructure for economic development. We remain committed to ensuring ease of doing business,” the governor said.
Welcoming the guest at the ceremony, Herbert Wigwe, managing director of Access Bank, said the bank was going to be a very critical platform in creating economic development in this area.
Mr. Wigwe said the bank had been able to build a very strong presence not just into the country, but a very strong international presence out in London, Dubai, China, India, etc.
“The opening of this branch in Epe is evidence of our strength and perhaps more importantly, is an evidence of our commitment to expand the number of communities we are able to proudly serve. I think it is a very much important commitment of us and to the people of Epe,” he said.
