Wiamoase (Ash) Jan, 11, GNA – Mrs Catherine Perkline, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sekyere South, has called on rural and community banks in the area to support the assembly in its quest to improve quality education delivery in the area.

Mrs Parkline was speaking at the inauguration of a new head office building complex for the Komfo Anokye Rural Bank at Wiamoase.

The new office complex, which is an extension of the existing one, is to provide a spacious office atmosphere for the staff to offer convenient services to the ever increasing number of customers of the bank in Wiamoase and its adjoining communities.

Mr Emmanuel Owusu Boakye, Vice – Chairperson of the Banks Board of Directors, said the bank was opened in 1983 with 11 staff but could now boast of 213 staff members in its nine branches in the country.

Nana Boakye Yiadom, Chief of Wiamoase called on the bank not to relent in its efforts at improving the living conditions of the people.
