Following his invitation and acceptance, the Chief Executive Officer of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Dr Adesola Adeduntan, has been appointed into the Bretton Woods Committee (BWC) as a member.
Specifically, Dr. Adeduntan’s appointment is in recognition of his outstanding leadership traits and the impact of FirstBank in driving financial inclusion in Nigeria and, by extension, Africa.
Dr Adeduntan, who expressed profound gratitude over his invitation and acceptance, affirmed FirstBank’s commitment to the goals of the BWC.
“On behalf of the Board, Management, and Staff of FirstBank, I’m deeply honoured to be recognised as a member of The Bretton Woods Committee.
“In addition, as a contributor, FirstBank remains committed to the goals of the Bretton Woods Committee. Especially at this time when the role played by business and political leaders is critical to exploring efficient ways of deepening collaboration and inclusion across borders, whilst mitigating the adverse effects of the coronavirus on not just the global economy but on other aspects of the livelihood of every individual and household.”
He concluded: “I look forward to working with other members of The Bretton Woods Committee, as we continue to build on the successes achieved over the years. With these, we will make the world a better place.”
Established in 1983, the Breton Woods Committee is committed to creating more awareness for the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization, and other major development banks.
