Delivering his last address, Mr Adu Jnr said he is available to mentor and guide the youth.
“I see those (youth) who will borrow money to take a trip to Dubai, US, wherever to go and have fun because others are doing it. If you can afford it, don’t [try it]. Don’t borrow to go and have fun. You must rather invest because if you don’t invest and you retire, you will go looking for a job”.
He encouraged the youth to be humble and be nice to people throughout their career.
Some dedicated and most outstanding personnel at the bank were honoured with plaques and other products by the management of the bank.
Persons who have served at the bank for over ten years were all honoured for their meritorious service.
