Tinapa happens to be one of such. It’s the first, largest, and presently the only business resort in the entire West and Central African region and Ecobank Nigeria is proud to be associated with it,” Mr. Ambah said.

Welcoming the gathering, the Cross-Rivers state governor, Mr. Donald Duke, said that, at inception when his administration approached bank with the Tinapa vision, only a few of them responded favourably.

“Today, thanks to Ecobank, UBA, First Bank and others, our vision has become a reality, and baby Tinapa has been delivered,” he said.
