Following the fumigation of all its branches across Sierra Leone in a bid to cushion the spread and prevention of COVID-19, the Deputy Managing Director of Sierra Leone Commercial Bank (SLCB), Bockarie Kalokoh underscored the fact that SLCB is the safest bank for customers.

The Deputy Managing Director reiterated that the fumigation of its facilities is a precautionary measure against coronavirus in ensuring that their customers do not contract the disease when accessing their facilities nationwide to do business with the bank.

He said that the fumigation of their facilities done by Mr. Klin, a cleaning agency contracted by the bank is in complement of the effort of President Julius Maada Bio and his government in taking proactive measures in the fight against the disease.

Apart of the proactive precautionary measures taken as bank to prevent their valuable and loyal customers and the country at large in all its branches across the country he said SLCB is playing its path again in engaging the public to prevent themselves from the disease.

He further reiterated that “prevention is key, Corona virus is real, prevent the spread of corona, wash your hands regularly with soap and water, social distancing and avoid hands shaking”.

“Adhering to the precautionary measures, together we say NO TO CORONAVIRUS” he averred.

He called on all to adhere to the directives of the President and the ministry responsible in the fight against coronavirus spread in the country.
