Beyond Giant Financial Strides
the award on behalf of FBNHoldings, Mr. UK Eke, its Group Managing Director
said; “receiving this award from World Finance basically tells us two things.
One: it’s an affirmation of what we are doing in corporate governance, beyond
the giant strides we’re making in financial performance. So we see this as an
endorsement of the brand, and it’s a bragging right for us. Because again,
there are very few institutions in Nigeria that have benefited from this award.
We are truly proud to receive this award.”
Since 2007, World Finance has been celebrating corporate achievement, innovation and brilliance in their annual awards.
