Speaking concerning the Alpher launch and IWD celebrations, Mr. Emuwa said;

“I am especially pleased that we are unveiling Union Bank’s proposition for women. We are excited about the platform we have developed to support and enable success for women across board. I personally believe that the world, especially Nigeria, would be a much better place if it is balanced and women have full agency to be all that they can be.”

In past years, Union Bank has used the IWD platform to highlight its commitment to women’s causes including the launch of its women community WeHub in 2016 and the live performance of the women’s advocacy play ‘Hear Word’ in 2018.
