Mr Asamoah hinted that the Suame branch in Ashanti Region would be opened by the end of August this year.
He added that the bank was prospecting for branch locations in areas such as Korle-Bu, Dzorwulo, Mankessim, Haatso in the Greater Accre region and Aflao in the Volta region. He also noted that the bank was looking to open another within the University of Ghana Medical School.
According to him, the bank intended to relocate the Techiman and Dansoman branches in the course of the year to create more space and convenience for customers.
Mr Asamoah assured customers that, NIB had a robust ICT facilities which would enable customers to access banking services in all regions and towns where NIB had a presence.
He also announced the bank’s intention to set up a contact centre for easy access to customers to ensure effective complaints management.

The Deputy Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji A.B.A. Fuseini, urged the public to patronise the services of NIB; “NIB is a public bank hence the safety of customers money is assured”.
Alhaji Fuseini urged NIB to consider farmers in its loan offerings in the area since most of the people were farmers. That, he said would help boost economic activities in the area and the country as well.
