The newly-inaugurated board members of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) have pledged to formulate sound policies to enhance the safety and boost the nation’s Financial System Stability (FSS) to justify the confidence reposed in them when appointed.
The Chairman, Mrs Ronke Shokefun stated this at the opening ceremony of the maiden retreat for members of the Board in Abuja. As a critical member of the Nigeria financial safety net, Mrs Shokefun said the new Board is committed to providing the NDIC with the desired leadership required to enable the nation to achieve its goal of becoming one of the top twenty economies in the world by the year 2020.
She said: “As people of proven integrity, we are to collectively paddle the boat of NDIC in particular and that of the nation’s banking sector in general to safety. We owe this very important organisation and the nation that duty in order to justify the confidence reposed in us by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.”
The chairman described the role of the Board as critical in the achievement of the Corporation’s mandate, adding that the retreat will enable members to gain full insight into the Corporation’s mandate, its operations, achievements, and challenges. She concluded that the induction program will provide the Board with the in-depth Knowledge required for the formulation of policies to ensure enhanced service delivery by the Corporation.
Earlier before the commencement of the retreat, the NDIC Managing Director/Chief Executive, Umaru Ibrahim expressed the hope that the retreat will provide the new Board with the critical information and insight on the activities of the Corporation ahead of their assumption of office.
