Your money is safe – New Skye Bank CEO, Abiru tells customers

The new Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Skye Bank Plc, Tokunbo Abiru, has called on customers of the financial institution not to panic as their funds are in safe hands despite the changes in the bank.
Abiru affirmed the Central Bank of Nigeria’s statement that the bank remained healthy and strong.

Abiru, who spoke after taking over from his predecessor, Timothy Oguntayo, said the lender’s fundamentals remained “strong” and “virile”, assuring customers and other stakeholders of the safety of their funds and investments.

Abiru, who read out his vision for the bank, said his team would harness the expertise and skills of the bank’s employees and the reconstituted board to take the lender to new heights. He noted that as a Systematically Important Bank (SIB) bank, the lender occupies a sensitive role in the financial life of Nigerians and West Africa.

Recall that the CBN on Monday approved the reconstitution of a new Board. It named M. K. Ahmad and Abiru as Chairman and Managing Director.

Other new directors are Bayo Sanni, Idris Yakubu, Markie Idowu and Abimbola Izu.

The reconstitution of the board followed the voluntary resignation of the former Chairman, Dr. Tunde Ayeni and other Non – Executive Directors, namely Victor Odozi, Babajide Agbabiaka, Dr. Jason Fadeyi, Kunle Aluko, Victor Adenigbagbe, Abdul Bello and Hajiya Amunna Lawan Ali.

Oguntayo resigned as Group Managing Director /CEO, along with Mrs. Amaka Onwughalu, Dotun Adeniyi and Mrs. Ibiye Ekong who were DMD and EDs.
