United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, Africa’s Global Bank, has announced its audited financial results for the half year ended June 30, 2022, with double-digit growth across key income lines and significant progress in the contribution from its subsidiaries.
The Bank was able to deliver a 12.6% increase in profit before tax to N85.7 billion at the end of the first two quarters of the year, up from N76.2 billion in the same period of 2021.
Despite numerous business, economic, and geopolitical environmental challenges, such as ongoing supply-chain disruptions caused by Covid, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and the resulting rise in global commodity prices, that characterised the first six months of the year,
Ohanenye, who was the only female APC 2023 presidential aspirant said the government alone cannot address the country’s challenges.
She, therefore, said there was a need for all hands to be on deck, ” if the country’s challenges must be addressed holistically.
“Am praying to God to help us, but it is not just about the government, but about us all as citizens, we should think of how to contribute our own quota to make the country a better place.
“We all have roles to play in building our desired county, let us come together to achieve this,” she said.
The chieftain said she joined politics to be able to meet the needs of the common man and protect their interests where possible .
“Am in politics to protect the interest of the less privileged, the physically challenged, the indigent and widows that are being maltreated, even by the government in some cases,” she said.
Speaking on the frontline 2023 presidential candidates, Ohanenye said she sees in Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, what she wanted for Nigeria and the common man.
Ohanenye added: ‘Tinubu is a giver and a true democrat who loves all and encourages all irrespective of tribal or religious affiliations.”
She said that though she had been affecting people’s lives through her various projects, including skills acquisition centres, she was limited as an individual.
This, she said, was the reason she was joining efforts with Tinubu to bring about a better living condition for all.
