“We are glad that a brand like Access Bank finds what we are doing as a good avenue to express their Women’s empowerment agenda and connect with the broader African communities where they operate,” Akpata said. “It’s a win-win for all parties, but more importantly as a federation, I am very glad that we can reach more people with our goal, with Access behind us.”
