“We felicitate with our admirable sister, Adaora Umeoji-Nwokoye, on the astonishing feat of becoming the first female GMD/CEO of Zenith Bank in over 30 years of the bank’s existence.

“Her rise to the pinnacle of her career is testament to her brilliance and excellent work ethic,” the Foundation stated.

The Diamond Lady Family Support Foundation is a group founded by the mother of Umeoji, the late Ngozi Umeoji, to live out the philanthropic vision of helping the poor and needy, bringing joy to rural women, especially widows.

It noted that this vision is also in line with Adaora’s belief that “the essence of having prosperity is to share and benefit others”.

The Foundation prayed for divine protection and guidance in the discharge of her new office.
