Effective immediately, APO will be responsible for all Ecobank’s press release and corporate content distribution.

As well as hosting all releases on their Africa Newsroom’s press office, Ecobank will have access to APO’s Africa Wire, the only dedicated newswire service in Africa, offering unparalleled reach into newsrooms and online portals across the continent.
