Lagos Bankers’ Nite focuses on regaining Nigeria’s lost glory


The Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN), Lagos branch, has concluded plans to gather experts and stakeholders in the banking industry to brainstorm on how to regain the lost glory of the nation at the 2015 Bankers’ Nite.

The Lagos Bankers’ Nite is an annual dinner organised by the Lagos branch of CIBN. The forum provides unique opportunity for the exchange of ideas on contemporary economic and banking issues. It also affords bankers the opportunity to interact with one another and the business community.

Key operators in the banking industry and a wide spectrum of people in strategic sectors of the economy are expected at this year’s edition coming up August 13, at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

This year’s theme centres on regaining Nigeria’s lost glory. It promises to be thought provoking as emphasis is being shifted to the foundation of banking as a most noble profession capable of lifting our nation to the glorious era. The topic is “Rebuilding the value system: The strategic imperative for Nigerian economic development.”

In a statement signed by Arinola Adeniyi, chairman, organising committee, and Jide Iyanda, publicity secretary, Frank Aigbogun, the publisher of BusinessDay newspaper, has been chosen to deliver a keynote address.

The event will feature Akin Oyebode, a professor of law, as the guest speaker; Oba Akiolu is the royal father of the day, while the Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, is the guest of honour.
