We achieved these results despite continued challenging macroeconomic conditions in the second quarter with significant weakness in African currencies, higher consumer prices and slower economic growth.”

“We have made significant progress in formulating our strategic roadmap, which will provide the blueprint for our growth, transformation and turnaround agenda.

Over the past few months, as I have interacted with customers, Ecobankers colleagues and other stakeholders, my faith in our growth opportunities has been reaffirmed.

We see opportunities to build stronger and better customer relationships across our businesses, forge strategic partnerships and be the payment bank of choice, leveraging our superior platforms.

In addition, we will continue our transformation and growth agenda for our corporate, commercial and consumer banking businesses.

Notably, achieving our goals will require even more discipline in execution, proactive risk management, and focus on delivering for our customers.

Furthermore, prudent management of our balance sheet and capital remains a top priority.

We will also continue to invest in our cutting-edge technology, retaining and attracting talent while building the right culture,” Awori added.

Awori concluded: “Finally, I am proud of Ecobank’s contribution to the African communities where we operate, and equally proud of the good work that Ecobank staff do for our clients every day.”
