The Society for Corporate Governance Nigeria (SCGN) has inducted the chairman, Board of Directors, Polaris Bank Limited, Mr. Muhammad K. Ahmad, as a honorary fellow.
Ahmad was conferred with the award at the 2018 president’s dinner/induction ceremony of the society, held in Lagos.
In a press release issued yesterday by the bank’s head, Corporate Communications and Strategic Brand Management, Mr Rasheed Bolarinwa, he said that Ahmad was honoured for his unblemished professional records in the public and private sectors as well as his contributions to the socioeconomic development of Nigeria.
“The society described him as an astute professional with impressive footprints across various public sector organisations and financial services’ institutions where he played strategic roles and acted as the catalyst for the entrenchment of good corporate governance,” Bolarinwa said
The group managing director/CEO of Polaris Bank, Tokunbo Abiru, said the award was a celebration of the exemplary leadership capabilities of Ahmad.
“On behalf of the management and staff of Polaris Bank, I congratulate our amiable chairman on this well-deserved honour and recognition by the highly respected Society for Corporate Governance Nigeria. Under Ahmad’s leadership, we see a rewarding, bright future for our bank,” he said.
