GCB Bank has donated five desktop computers, accessories and a printer to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) to help improve its operational capacity.
The donation will enhance the agency’s capacity of gathering and distributing news across media houses in Ghana and beyond.
The presentation of the computers and their accessories was in response to an appeal by the GNA to the management of the GCB Bank early this year.
The Head of the Corporate Affairs Department of the bank, Mrs Thyra Obuobi, who made the presentation on behalf of GCB Management, expressed delight at the opportunity given to the bank to support GNA and the media in general in the dissemination of news in Ghana.
“This is a token from the bank to facilitate your work to enhance the dissemination of news across the country,” she added.
Mrs Obuobi encouraged management and staff of the GNA to do more businesses with the bank so that it could also continue to assist them because it was through their work that the country was seen and heard.
The acting General Manager of GNA, Mrs Yaa Oforiwaa Peasah, expressed gratitude to the management of the GCB Bank for its support towards the development of the agency.
Mrs Peasah explained that the GNA had a lot of challenges and called on other well-endowed institutions to follow the example of GCB and come to their aid.
The Head of Information Technology, Mr Henry Oduro, the Head of Traffic, Mr Prince Attefuah, the News Editor of GNA, Mrs Beatrice Asomani-Savage, and the Corporate and Brand Communications Manager of the Bank, Mr Emmanuel Kojo Kwarteng were also present at the presentation ceremony.
