At the hoisting of flag ceremony, the Acting DPACS for NASSIT Mr. Peter Kenah thanked the people and Government of Sierra Leone for allowing NASSIT to operate as an independent entity without political interference over the years. He also showered praises on their customers for reposing confidence in the Trust since its inception in 2002.

He said as a financial institution, they were joining their counterparts the world over to observe the week, the first time that NASSIT forms part of the worldwide celebration.  He said as an institution that was established from a humble beginning, NASSIT would observe this week in grand style in 2011 with variety of activities with support from the Director General. He noted that the customer is the pivot of what ever NASSIT is doing, for which he said it was no mistaking this year’s theme for celebration, “the customer is the pivot of my business” was chosen. NASSIT, he went on believe and have high regard for both its internal and external customers. “We want to be very much aware of the role these people (customers) are playing in the NASSIT system and therefore, we put them in the center in whatever we are coming up with,” said Mr. Kenah.
