According to the statement, Mr Folashodun Shonubi is currently the managing director of the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS) – the financial payments, facilitation and settlement platform, which has been instrumental to the growth in electronic payments in the Nigerian financial industry.
He said, “Before assuming the headship of NIBBS in 2012, Mr Shonubi had garnered decades of executive-level experience in financial service operations, notably as executive director at Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Renaissance Securities Nigeria Ltd and Ecobank Nigeria Plc. Recall that deputy governor in charge of Operations, Adebayo Adelabu, who would resign his appointment with effect from July 15, has indicated interest to join the gubernatorial race in Oyo State.
