Ecobank Rapid Transfer has been named the official money transfer service for the 4th Okpekpe 10km Road Race scheduled for May 7th in Okpekpe town, in Edo State.
The Okpekpe Race, an International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Bronze Label Race, will attract over 3000 local and international professional athletes.
Announcing the bank’s premium partnership in Lagos, Charles Kie, Ecobank’s Managing Director, said the Ecobank Rapid Transfer was best suited for the competition that has grown to have global recognition. This year’s partnership is the 3rd on the row the bank is getting the official money transfer status of the renowned Okpekpe Road Race.
According to Mr. Kie, “The service was conceived out of the need to provide quick, convenient, accessible, and reliable money transfer facility for our retail and wholesale customers and non-customers of the bank”.
Kie is optimistic that the Ecobank Rapid Transfer will provide the much-needed ease of financial transactions during and after the competition, and urged all the participants to avail themselves of the opportunities provided by the bank.
The Okpekpe 10km road race is organised by Pamodzi Sports Marketing, a leader in sports marketing, sponsorship, hospitality and Rights Acquisition business in Nigeria in conjunction with the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) and the Edo State government.
