OmniBSIC Bank over the weekend took to some principal streets of Accra to embark on a maiden health walk as part of their activities to complete its merger process.
The health walk under the theme: “At Your Service”, was organized by the Bank to champion the need for staff to exercise regularly to promote healthy living and also to create corporate bond after a successful merger.
