UBA appoints four new board members

The Board of Directors of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) has appointed four new members to its board, subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The new board members are Mrs Angela Adebayo, Ms Angela Aneke, Alhaji Abdulqadir Jeli 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, which had already taken effect from August 30, 2018.

“I am pleased to welcome Erelu Adebayo, Angela Aneke, Abdulqadir Bello and Kayode Fasola to the Group Board” said Tony O. Elumelu, the Group Chairman of the Bank.

“These appointees bring a wealth of experience in their fields and will be tremendous assets, as we deliver on our mission to become the leading Pan-African financial institution in all our countries of operation.”

‘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,’ added the Group Chairman.

Elumelu thanked the retiring directors for their contribution, hard work and commitment to UBA, “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.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the Bank’s strong H1 2018 performance with a PBT of N58.1 billion. With the successful expansion of its retail operations, UBA now operates in 20 countries in Africa, following its recent acquisition of a licence in Mali and the United Kingdom. The bank also has offices in New York City and in Paris.
