president of Nigeria Institute of Management (NIM), Prof. Olakunle Iyanda has stated its readiness to contribute its quota towards enhancing the success story of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) in the area of affordable housing and staff training.
Iyanda stated this when he led members of the institute on a courtesy visit to FMBN headquarter in Abuja, recently.
He however invited FMBN to join NIM as corporate member just as he appealed to the bank to pay the annual subscription of its staff who are members of NIM.
“We want to establish the mutually beneficial relationship to participate in the training of your staff periodically either as nominees to various training programmes that we run or as facilitator for your internal programmes for selected group of staff in the bank”, he added.
Responding, the managing director of FMBN, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa noted that the bank has continued to sponsor its staff to NIM professional development programmes yearly and would continue with the trend in order to enrich the bank human resources.
Dangiwa also explained that the bank was established by an act to provide affordable mortgages that would boost home ownership among Nigerian workers particularly the low and medium income earners that constituted over 80 percent of the population.
