SG Ghana, Fidelity Bank Delegations Call on Vice-Chancellor

delegation from Societe Generale Ghana ( SG Ghana) has called on the Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, at the Council Chamber.  The delegation, led by the Advisor to the Managing Director SG Ghana, Mr. Edmund W. Brobbey, was at the University to introduce new banking products initiated by SG Ghana to the Vice-Chancellor and the University community. Key amongst the initiatives, according to Mr. Brobbey, was the Digital Corner, which is a completely self-service miniature styled branch powered by solar energy. He revealed that the two main elements found in the Digital Corner were new generation of ATM and tablets. He further disclosed that the Digital Corner could enable students and staff to check their account balance, make product request, locate any of the 42 branches of SG Ghana throughout the country using google maps, calculate and a make loan request; and access base rate and indicative forex rates. Mr. Brobbey said university students were fast embracing digitization, hence, the need to introduce the Digital Corner for 24 hours easy banking services. He, therefore, requested a parcel of land to put up the Digital Corner for the University community. Addressing the delegation, Prof. Ampiah expressed joy at the new initiative and told the delegation that the University would give the Bank a place to put up the structure. He added that the University would also give the bank the chance to sensitize members of the university community on their services and products. He reminded them of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) towards the University so as to deepen the relations well. In a similar development, the Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, has met with a delegation from Fidelity Bank. The delegation was at the University to congratulate the Vice-Chancellor on his appointment and also introduce some of the Bank’s products to the University management. Speaking at the meeting, the Deputy Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, Mr. Julian Opuni, said the Bank had positioned itself well and was ready to provide quality banking services to the University community. Some officials of the Bank took turns to explain some of the initiatives of the bank, including personal banking for staff, transaction banking, QR code system, cashless system, amongst others. For his part, Prof. Ampiah thanked the delegation for the visit and indicated that the University was ready to work with banks which would provide better services to its staff and students, stressing that” we don’t have permanent friends, we have permanent interest.” He urged the Bank to discharge its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) roles to the University. That, he said, would encourage the University to partner the Bank effectively for future endeavours.
