The Katsina State Governor, Malam Dikko Umar Radda, says he has aligned his administration with The Alternative Bank’s mission to support rural economic growth through innovative financial solutions, tailored to empower local businesses and stimulate sustainable development across the State. 

Radda made this known at the launch of new chapter of The Alternative Bank in Katsina. 

He emphasised the importance of combating poverty, particularly in rural areas, urging the bank to collaborate with the government in its efforts to address the challenge.

Represented by his Special Adviser on Banking, Malik Anas, the Governor expressed confidence in the success of The Alternative Bank in the area.

According to him “one of our aims as a government is to enhance the growth of our people, especially those in rural areas.

“We seek the cooperation of The Alternative Bank in this area. 

“We are ready to give the necessary support to the bank to forge ahead and contribute to the economic development of Nigeria.”

On his part, the Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumin Usman, also expressed confidence in the bank’s endeavours, setting the stage for a harmonious relationship between the financial institution and the Katsina community.

Also speaking, the wife of the Governor, Hajiya Fatimah Radda, further re-echoed  government’s support for The Alternative Bank and stressed the importance of including the less-privileged, including widows and orphans, in the bank’s corporate social responsibility initiatives. 

She noted that, “it has been found out that a large number of people living in the local governments of Katsina are largely unbanked, presenting a massive untapped opportunity for the bank.”

The Executive Director of the bank, Alhaji Garba Mohammed, reiterated the institution’s commitment to financial empowerment for all customers, regardless of their status noting that the bank’s focus on providing efficient and technology-driven services to facilitate customer and national growth. 

“The Alternative Bank is a bank with a difference. 

“Apart from being a non-interest bank, we promise our customers prompt, loyal, efficient and technologically-driven services. 

“We also promise to promote financial empowerment among our customers, irrespective of their status.

“When our customers grow, our bank will also grow. 

“This will lead to the growth and development of our dear country, Nigeria.”

Furthermore, the bank’s Regional Business Executive, Mallam Wada Nas, assured the Katsina business community and citizens that the bank is committed to meeting their banking needs with honesty, professionalism and competence.

“We will serve truthfully and prioritise your banking needs. 

“You can be assured of our professional competence,” he said
