President Uhuru Kenyatta has unveiled plans to make Nairabi an international financial centre and is calling on UBA to play a pivotal role in seeing to the actualization of this plan.
Speaking in Abuja at a luncheon organized in his honor on Monday by UBA, President Kenyatta said the bank, as African financial services institution is in pole position to bring its financial know-how to make this happen.

He lamented that Africans have traditionally looked outside for development partners but the time has come to shift focus inwards and partner with credible local institutions. He commended UBA for its continental expansion in general and the establishment of the Kenyan office in particular stating that the bank’s African outlook is noteworthy. “We look at you as partners who will oil the wheel of progress, helping to create the kind of investments that will grow our economies and create jobs” he stated.

According to the Kenyan President who addressed the gathering of senior UBA executives and top Nigerian businessmen at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Africa is continent of great potentials, particularly in human resources and therefore the need for banks and financial institution like UBA to support the entrepreneurial aspirations of the people.
