The transition into the biggest commercial bank in Africa is gradually blooming for the Access/Diamond Bank merger, as the bank has just received its Court Approval for the merger.
Following the overwhelming shareholder vote in support of the merger and the regulators’ final approvals, Access Bank and Diamond Bank now officially have the go-ahead to become one Bank.
Consequently, Access Bank MD/CEO, Herbert Wigwe has said the bank will launch as a new brand on April 1, 2019. “Sharing this update with you makes me happy and I want to thank all of you for your hard work and preparation towards achieving this milestone,” he said in a mail to staff.
“With 29 million customers, and products and services to suit everyone– from the financially excluded to multi-national companies– we have more to offer than any other bank. That means that there are also more opportunities for you, in a bigger, more diverse, more international bank,” Wigwe added, as he pledged that the customers will always be at the forefront of all activities of the bank.
Congratulations Access Bank!
