On behalf of the Management and Staff of Oceanic Bank International

In your victory, we see a convergence of time and destiny,
resilience, and resourcefulness, all factors that played a pivotal
role in your historic election as the first Black President of the
world's largest democracy.

We particularly admire and identify with your "yes we can"
philosophy which has enamored your desire to be a change agent right
from your days in Harvard Law School, your community work in Chicago
and selfless service as a Senator representing the State of
Illinois.

Coming at this time, your choice as the 44th President of the USA is
clearly a manifestation of the grace of God that makes the most
ordinary of men achieve extraordinary feat.
