Africa Day celebration lights up UBA

Colourful African
attires brightened Monday morning in UBA’s offices across the continent on May
25, 2015 as UBA staff turned out in their best African dress styles to celebrate
Africa Day.  
Africa Day is an
annual celebration across the world. As a pan-African financial institution,
UBA uses the day to celebrate its multicultural identity on the continent.

At UBA House in
Lagos, traditional African dancers welcomed UBA staff, dressed in different
traditional attires into the building.
A key part of the
celebration at the UBA House was the search for the best dressed male and
female staff.  Oghenetega Adah, dressed
as a female Itshekiri bride, emerged the winner with the highest number of
votes in the female category while Salaam Saheed, who was garbed as a Yoruba
king, clinched the first price in the male category.


In UBA Kenya, the
Africa Day began on a high note with various members of staff showcasing their
unique African inspired attire as they reported to work.
