Life of Church Christian Church of God (RCCG) General Overseer Worldwide Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye has urged mortgage bankers to promote the virtues of excellence and honesty in banking.
She spoke at the opening of the head office of Jubilee-Life Mortgage Bank (JLMB), owned by the church in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Mrs. Adeboye, who represented her husband Pastor Enoch Adeboye, recalled that in the 1990s, some mortgage banks after collecting customers’ money collapsed, thereby causing them tears, woes and untimely deaths. She warned the management of the bank to be above board in their customer relations.
She said: ‘’You don’t need to break the hearts of people after collecting their money and send them to their early graves because you did not pay back.’’ She charged the staff to be unique in service delivery and carry out their responsibilities diligently.
Chairman of the bank Elder Felix Ohiwerei described the event as glorious, adding that it was the first time that the 14-year-old bank would have its own offices, having been on rented apartments. ‘’In the past, people found it difficult to reach us. Now, we are in a spacious place where you can do so,’’ Ohiwerei said. He thanked customers for their support, and urged them to continue to bank with the lender.
Its Managing Director, Aderemi Olatunbode said the lender was licensed in 2003 and commenced business the following year. From a shareholders’ capital fund of N200 million and a branch, it has grown to N5 billion with six branches. In response to those who accuse the bank of being unknown.
