The Board of Directors of the United Bank for Africa has announced the appointment of four new members to its board, subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The new board members are Mrs Erelu Adebayo, Ms. Angela Aneke, Alhaji Abdulqadir Bello and Mr Isaac Olukayode Fasola.
These appointments follow the retirement of Mrs Rose Okwechime, Mr Adekunle Olumide, Alhaji Ja’afaru Paki, and Mr Yahaya Zekeri, with effect from August 30, 2018.
“I am pleased to welcome Erelu Adebayo, Angela Aneke, Abdulqadir Bello and Kayode Fasola to the group board,” the Group Chairman of UBA, Mr Tony Elumelu, said.
“These men and women bring a wealth of experience in their fields and will be of tremendous assets as we deliver on our mission to become the leading pan-African financial institution in all our countries of operation,” the group chairman said.
He added, “I am particularly pleased that two of the newly appointed non-executive directors are women, bringing the total number of women to four, a further demonstration of our commitment to ensuring equality for both men and women.”
Elumelu, however, thanked the retiring directors for their contribution, hard work and commitment to the bank.
“I would like to express my appreciation to our retiring directors for their leadership and dedication to UBA and for their contribution to an already impressive 2018. I wish them the very best in their future endeavours,” he said.
