“In the face of these types of changes, the CIBN must remain steadfast in its commitment to excellence and innovation.

It is incumbent upon all stakeholders, including the CIBN, to redouble your efforts to promote financial literacy, expand access to finance, and foster inclusive growth, that leaves no one behind.”
