Shettima praised the gestures of Unity Bank acknowledging previous support to the state, especially the donation of relief materials worth millions of naira to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in September 2016, the N25 million support to the State’s University projects in 2014 and the consistent presence of the Bank in the state even during the peak of the insurgency.

He restated his administration’s willingness to consolidate the cordial mutual relationship existing between the Bank and the state government; noting that Unity Bank has stood firm by Borno state to support its developmental agenda.
