The bank branch was opened in Igbogbo community on Monday, August 6, 2018, amidst fanfare among residents of the community with leading stakeholders and other personalities in attendance.

The new branch of the bank is expected to provide quality service to residents of Igbogbo community as well as individuals and businesses from neighbouring cities within the community by offering a comprehensive range of banking services including deposits and loans, trade services, and payment, as well as cash management solutions. The branch also promises to offer customers the latest in banking technology through alternative channels offered by Sterling Bank.

Speaking at the opening, the Chairman, Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA, Comrade Olusesan Daini, charged the bank on efficiency and quality service delivery. He also noted that the development would signal a new turn in the economic activities of the local council and business owners in the community.
