There is no need to panic, Skye Bank Plc customers have been assured following the changes in the bank. The new Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Tokunbo Abiru, affirmed the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN’s) statement that the bank remains healthy and strong.
Abiru, who spoke after taking over from his predecessor, Timothy Oguntayo, said the lender’s fundamentals remained “strong” and “virile”, assuring customers and other stakeholders of the safety of their funds and investments.
His assurance came on a day Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele gave banks a clean bill of health (see page 11).
The Skye Bank chief said his team would leverage on the bank’s reputable information technology platform to make the lender not just a frontline retail and commercial bank, but an industry leader.
Abiru, who outlined his vision for the bank, said his team would harness the expertise and skills of the bank’s employees and the reconstituted board to take the lender to new heights.
