AFRIEXIM Bank promises to strengthen partnership with Arik

The African Export-Import Bank, (AFRIEXIM Bank) has said that it will continue to strengthen its relationship with Arik Air and support the airline in every area possible.

Speaking when the Board of Directors of the bank paid a working visit to Arik Air office last weekend, AFRIEXIM Bank President, Dr Benedict Oramah, said they were supporting the airline because of the essential role it is playing in connecting people across Africa and making sure goods are delivered across the continent.

“We want to make sure they (Arik) are strengthened to do that. We also understand the difficulties in the environment, not only in Nigeria but in most African countries.

“Ours is a bank created to deal with or support our clients under such situations. We also wanted to be briefed on how these things are affecting the company and what we can do to make sure they ride through the situation,” Oramah explained.

In his response, Chairman, Arik Air, Sir Joseph Arumemi-Ikhide thanked the AFRIEXIM Bank delegation for their visit.
