The National Investment Bank (NIB) has deepened the over two decades relationship it has with the Vatican. In a recent visit by the Managing Director of NIB, Mr. Samuel Sarpong to the Apostolic Nunciature (the Embassy of the Holy see) here in Accra, the Nuncio to Ghana, Monsignor (Msgr) Henryk Mieczyslaw Jagodzinski assured that the church will continue to collaborate with the bank for mutual benefit.

The Apostolic Nuncio to Ghana, Monsignor (Msgr) Henryk Mieczyslaw Jagodzinski re-echoed his delight at the services NIB renders to the Nunciature and assured continuous collaboration with NIB. He gave a firm assurance that the church will continue to do business with the National Investment Bank (NIB). The assurance comes as the financial architecture across Nunciatures has been restructured.

Monsignor Jagodzinski added that the church values “the over 20-year relationship with you, so in spite of the adverse impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and our operations, and emphasized that “we will continue to work with you, engage more with you to help the catholic church grow in Ghana”.

In his response, the Managing Director of NIB expressed elation at the bond between the two institutions and assured Monsignor Jagodzinski that NIB will continue to provide the Nunciature tailored services to meet its needs.

The Nuncio is a Vatican representative accredited as an ambassador to a civil government and is the one who maintains official diplomatic relations with the Holy See. He promotes good relations between the government and the Holy See and observes as well as reports to the Pope on the conditions of the Roman Catholic Church in the region.

Maher Chammas, Secretary to The Nunciature, representatives of the Corporate and Development Banking Department – Mr. Osman Atchulo, Fund Manager; Mrs. Doreen Quartey, Relationship Manager; Mr. Bernard Danquah, Relationship Manager; and Mrs. Juliana Azure, Branch Manager – Osu
