UBA unveils account opening form for visually-impaired customers


United Bank for Africa says it has launched the UBA Braille Account Opening Form designed specifically to cater to the financial needs of the visually impaired.

A statement by the bank said the initiative demonstrates its commitment towards providing an excellent user experience for all its customers, regardless of their individual abilities or disabilities.

According to the statement, the account opening form was launched at the UBA Head Office in Lagos on Tuesday in an event that had in attendance key executive members of the bank and guests including Award-winning Nigerian Musician, Producer, and Songwriter, Cobhams Asuquo.

Others present at the launch were the General Manager, Lagos State Office for Disability Affairs, Dare Dairo; Former Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos State Governor on Persons Living with Disability, Adenike Oyetunde-Lawal, as well as students from the Pacelli School of the Blind.

While endorsing the initiative, Asuquo described the Braille account as an innovative initiative that presents UBA as a bank with a heart that pays keen attention to the needs of the blind and disabled.

Asuquo said, “Before now, we have always been at the mercy of the reader when we want to do things like open accounts for ourselves, but this account opening form has come to solve the problem of access which has previously been a huge limiting factor for people like me who are blind.

“With this initiative, UBA has promoted our ideal of inclusivity and has helped to put back freedom in our hands while opening us up to the variety of opportunities and options available to us.”

UBA’s Executive Director, Finance and Risk Management, Ugo Nwaghodoh said, “In our quest to drive all-encompassing financial inclusion, we decided to support the visually impaired by developing a Braille Account Opening form and these special customers now have the same opportunities available to our customers.”
