The dearth of banking institutions in Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State may soon be a thing of the past following strong assurances by the Chairman of Moonlight Estate, Igbo-Etche, Ambassador Jonathan Mark to liaise with operators to establish banks in the area.
Speaking while handing over letters of employment to over 500 youths of Etche ethnic nationality into his Pedronate Hotel and Resort Limited, Ambassador Mark said more banks are needed in Etche to complement the efforts of few existing ones.
According to him, these institutions are needed in Etche to meet the banking needs of the people and economic and social activities which are growing in leaps.
He told the employees to live up to expectations as he intends to engage more indigenes of Etche in his establishments within and outside the state.
The businessman, who is popularly called Don Pedro by admirers, used the occasion to announce a brand new salon car to the winner of the 2019 Miss Etche beauty pageant, even as he pledged financial packages for youths talented in music and other forms of entertainment.
