Cleric unveils microfinance bank in Delta community
General Overseer, Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr. Paul Enenche, has launched Revelation Microfinance Bank in Ughelli town, Delta State, to boost economic activities in the community and environs.
Dr. Enenche, after the unveiling of the bank, appointed Frank Esemudje, an engineer, as the Board Chairman, with a charge to run the financial institutions with “sincerity, honesty integrity, probity and accountability.”
The pastor advised the management and staff of the bank to conduct themselves with utmost level of integrity, character and the fear of God, so as not to fail the people who will be entrusting their life savings into their hands.
He said: “This is a great effort, progress and development, and if there is financial accountability and integrity, they will not fail. I believe sons and daughters of this land should rise up to bring such a level of development home to empower more people.”
The Board Chairman of the bank, Esemudje, said the decision to establish the bank was to increase the working capacity of the people in terms of creating employment and to encourage petty traders to boost their businesses by granting them access to various loan products.
He said: “We have over 2,000 employees in our business across the state with good salary packages, and I did not jump into the banking sector; I was formerly there and I divinely sought the face of God for approval of the Revelation Microfinance Bank vision before we ventured into it.”
On his part, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Okhimamhe Patrick, assured current and prospective customers that the financial institution has a mandate to uplift the community in accordance with its motto, ‘Empowering Dream, Enriching Lives.’
