Nigeria’s leading mortgage financial institution, Cooperative Mortgage Bank, has opened a new contact centre in Asaba, Delta State capital.

The groundbreaking ceremony, which was held at the new centre at Plot 147, Okpanam Road, was graced by dignatries and cooperative societies members.

Speaking at the event, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of CMB, Kabir Tukur, said the bank has  broken the jinx of having a cooperative bank in Delta, as the state has one of the most viable cooperative federation in the country.

He said, “Though our coming into Delta might seem late due to the expectancy, but it’s better late than never because we’re here to provide value in terms of houses for cooperators, ensuring cooperative savings, among others.’’

‘’As one of the first steps, we are partnership with Family Homes Funds Limited on the 200 units of houses under Locke Homes initiative.

‘’I want to assure you that housing is here, and not with high cost of mortgage but the lowest.’’

‘’We have been here for over 27 years. We were initially in the Southwest but now moving to South-South and Asaba is the 18th centre we’re opening across the country. Our next centres would be in Minna, Kano and Lokoja.

Tukur stated further that the new branch will provide home ownership services for other residents in the state, other than cooperators who are the main beneficiaries.

In his remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Delta State Ministry of Trade and Industry, Mr Pat Isiechi, said CMB’s approach was a welcome development which would help people in the state in their home ownership quest.

‘’To be apt, CMB has hit the ground running already. I want to assure the MD that Delta is a state that is proud of investment. We have all the conducive environment for cooperators and whatever is invested in them.

‘’Delta state is in front in sport and others and we appreciate the MD of CMB for finding Delta worthy of this honour. With these good intentions, CMB will thrive here.

President, Delta Cooperative Federation, Mr Larry Onyeche, appreciated the bank on behalf of other members, adding that the promise of launching a contact centre has been fulfilled.

He therefore gave his assurance that the federation will partner with the bank to ensure adequate members benefit from the core mission of the bank.

Also in attendance at the event were Director of Cooperative, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Mr Chuks Onyekpe, his deputy, Mr Frank Aghara, Director of Commerce, Mr Felix Oseji, and the Director of Planning, Reasearch and Statistics, Mr Tabowei Jerry.
