In her address to staff and customers Chioma, emphasized the importance of supporting African businesses.

"We understand the challenges faced by African enterprises, and we believe in the power of supporting our own. That's why we are thrilled to announce our partnership with African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) to inject $6 billion into supporting SMEs across Africa, including those in Uganda. We encourage Mbale SMEs to take advantage of this opportunity to grow and thrive."

She also highlighted the significance of empowering women in business, noting the shifting dynamics towards gender equality.

"It's time for women to seize opportunities in education, entrepreneurship, and leadership. At UBA, we are proud to champion gender balance, six out of our nineteen subsidiaries outside Nigeria are led by women. We believe in equipping women with the tools they need to succeed, including education, wellness, and work-life balance."
