125 years of supporting and enabling dreams, 125 years of resilience and relevance, 125 years of trust, safety and security, 125 years of long term value to all stakeholders, 125 years woven into the fabric of our society and therefore we dare say, 125 years beyond comparison!
Come March 31, 2019, First Bank, Nigeria’s largest financial powerhouse, will be 125 years.
In his words, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan (FCIB), said “We mean it when we say First Bank is You. As Nigerians, we have made history together and should be proud of this monumental feat because globally, very few institutions can boast such a rich and relevant heritage as a member of the 100-year Club. We therefore invite every single one of you as stakeholders to join us in celebrating our Anniversary Year. We ask you to stand tall and claim this achievement with us as one more great thing out of Nigeria to the World; First Bank since 1894.”
“From our very modest beginning in 1894 as the Bank of British West Africa, we have traversed an incredible journey, delivering impeccable financial services to customers and supporting the building of the modern-day Nigeria and indeed, West Africa, including our early pivotal role as the monetary and fiscal policy regulator for the entire West African region,” Dr. Adesola said.
“At the amalgamation, independence, and through the seasons ever since, we have been here marching hand-in-hand with you. We have enabled technological, industrial and societal advancements, achieving very many firsts; been resilient and supportive through periods of rapid and radical changes; pioneered and charted the course in our industry, nay, in the nation at large.
“From the delta to the savannah, from the confluence to the plateau, we are proud to be truly woven into the fabric of society.
“On behalf of the board and management of First Bank, it is my honour and privilege to thank you and assure you that we look forward boldly and with great confidence and optimism to the next 125 years knowing we are here with you and for You and promise to remain truly the first by keeping You First. “God bless Nigeria, God bless First Bank of Nigeria!”
