UBA celebrates Africa Day; showcases vibrant African Heritage and Cultural Diversity


UBA Ghana has commemorated this year’s Africa Union (AU) Day with a vibrant ceremony held at its head office and other Business Offices across the country.

As the bank marks its 20th anniversary of the Bank in Ghana and 75th anniversary of the UBA Group, it continues to leverage Africa Day to celebrate the continent’s unity in diversity and highlight its rich cultural and economic potential.

Staff members showcased the rich cultural heritage of Africa by dressing in various indigenous attire, representing different tribes, ethnic groups, and countries.

Henry Nii Dottey, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications at UBA Ghana, emphasized, “As a premium Pan-African bank driven by multicultural diversity, UBA aims to put Africa on the world map as a key player in finance. We celebrate Africa Day to promote unity, mutual respect, and pride in who we are as a people and a Pan-African organisation with a global reach.”

This year’s celebrations featured a range of exciting activities, including a continent-wide competition – the Africa Day Best Dressed Competition – open to all staff members, with prizes of up to USD 12,000 to be won across the network.

UBA Ghana showcased its commitment to boosting trade in Africa through its innovative products and services, including AfriTrade, a robust self-developed platform for export proceeds collection and import bills payments across the sub-region. The bank’s cross-border remittance services, such as Africash and UBA Connect, provide efficient support for traders and individuals moving goods and services across the continent.

To engage customers, the bank hosted an interactive activity called “Spin The Wheel,” offering education on African history, food, Tourist sites, culture, and the chance to win exciting prizes.

Customers of the Bank were also treated to some local drinks and snacks as part of the celebrations.
