When the history is written of the Ministry, Mr. Zubah’s hands and footprints will be highlighted, because my plan here is to impact at least one person’s life everyday”, Minister Wlue concluded.

Mr. Zubah was presented two (2) beautifully made traditional gown-shirts, a certificate of recognition, and an enclosed purse given by Minister Wlue. To further boost the recognition of Mr. Zubah in perpetuity, Minister Wlue named the Banking Hall as “John Zubah Banking Hall” with his photo to be posted therein. This was greeted with thunderous applause by the employees as well as well-wishers.
