One of the most reliable African global banks, United Bank for Africa (UBA), Monday 25th May 2009 commemorated the Africa Day in Sierra Leone and other countries where it operates. The Africa Day is celebrated in recognition of the achievements made by Africa, which have contributed immensely to the development of the African continent and the world at large.

In an interview with the Head of Branding, Corporate Management and Communication of UBA Sierra Leone, Manja Kargbo-Abdulia, she disclosed that the Africa Day is celebrated by all African countries, adding that some African countries do observe it as a special public holiday.

She further disclosed that the Africa Day has been commemorated since the establishment of the Organization of Africa Unity (OAU), now known as the Africa Unity (AU).

Madam Manja Kargbo-Abdulia noted that UBA has been in existence for over 50 years, pointing out that the bank always prioritized

Africa in its corporate social responsibilities.

She said it was in line with UBAs development initiative around the world and Africa in particular, that the bank has always deemed it fit to observe the Day.

She further maintained that UBA is operating in 19 countries in Africa and other continents.

The celebration was climaxed by cultural performances staged by the Sierra Leone National Dance Troop and a banquet code named Africa Dinner at which all African Ambassadors assigned to Sierra Leone and other distinguished personalities from across Africa were present.
