New BDAN president pledges support for growth of banking sector
The newly-appointed president of the Bank Directors Association of Nigeria (BDAN), Mustafa Chike-Obi, has pledged to pursue the mandate of the association through stakeholders’ support for a robust banking industry.
Chike-Obi, who promised to tackle issues affecting directors, also pledged to work with relevant stakeholders to ensure banks play a more active role in the nation’s economy.
Chike-Obi, who is also the Chairman of Fidelity Bank Plc, said this as he took over from Osaretin Demuren, after completion of her tenure.
“As the chairman of the association, I plan to represent more robustly the interest of the banking industry and to project the image of the banking industry as an essential partner with customers and the economy. I look forward to partnering with shareholders as well as customers, regulators and all other players to contribute their quota to positioning the Nigerian economy for sustainable growth and recovery,” Chike-Obi said.
According to the executive secretary of the association, Adebukola Orenuga, the appointment was ratified by the forum for banks’ chairmen organised by the association in June 2021.
Chike-Obi has over 40 years of experience in investment banking and the financial services sector, working with reputable global investment banking and asset management firms.
