Oliver Alawuba, the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, is now the Chairman of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) Body of Banks’ CEOs.

The CIBN announced the appointment on its website on Monday, July 8, 2024.

This prestigious appointment underscores Alawuba’s extensive experience and visionary leadership in the banking sector, as well as his unwavering commitment to advancing the financial industry in Nigeria and across Africa.

In his role as chairman, Alawuba will be at the forefront of fostering collaboration and driving strategic initiatives among the top executives of banks in Nigeria.

Just as he has achieved as the GMD of Africa’s Global Bank, UBA, Alawuba’s leadership is expected to bring innovative solutions and strengthen the collective efforts of the banking community while addressing the dynamic challenges and opportunities within the financial sector.

The CIBN also announced the appointment of Mrs. Miriam Olusanya, the CEO of GTBank, as the Vice Chairman of the Body of Banks’ CEOs.

Her appointment, alongside Alawuba’s, signifies a strong and unified leadership team poised to enhance the banking landscape in Nigeria, CIBN said.

Meanwhile, UBA has extended its heartfelt congratulations to Alawuba and Olusanya on their appointments, stating that it is confident that their combined expertise and visionary leadership will usher in a new era of progress and innovation for the banking industry in Nigeria.

The bank also expressed the hope that, under their guidance, the Body of Banks’ CEOs will continue to play a pivotal role in shaping policies and strategies that will drive sustainable economic growth and enhance the overall stability of the financial system in Nigeria.
