The article which cited anonymous sources claimed General John F. Campbell a former U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey.

We remain focused and firmly committed to delivering on our strategy to build Africa’s premier banking institution.
