Managing director and chief executive of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, has been conferred with the Honorary Citizenship of the State of Georgia and Congressional Commendation Award from the Georgia Senate, United States of America (USA).
The honour and award were received at the International Forum on African Leadership (IFAL) last week on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meetings. The identification of Dr. Adeduntan for the award is in recognition of his position as one of Africa’s most distinguished thought leaders in the financial sector.
The ward was also in recognition of his impeccable leadership savvy backed by years of invaluable experience in the continent’s banking industry while also impacting the lives of his internal and external communities through his unalloyed commitment to the growth of FirstBank and Africa at large.
Meanwhile, as part of its financial inclusion and thought leadership drive, the bank participated in the Africa Investment Summit convened by Guardian Newspapers, Financial Times of London, NEPAD Business Group, Africa Business Roundtable, Africa Matters and Capital 3 Ltd.
