Njie said this showed that despite The Gambia being small, “in our midst we have one of the biggest banks operating in the largest economy of Africa, Nigeria and of course The Gambia.”
He believes that these products and services will strengthen the international trade specific to Gambia. “We are confident that we will be able to attract the best in this country.”

He added that the combination of Diamond Bank’s strong retail customer franchise and leading digital platform with Access Bank’s corporate banking capabilities and proven risk management and capital management expertise will create a diversified financial institution with strong value creation potential.
