Two persons have been appointed to the board of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc and they are Ms Aisha Hassan-Baba and Mr Kenneth Orji.
The appointments follow the recent executive board appointments of Oliver Alawuba as CEO, UBA Africa; Abdoul Aziz Dia as Executive Director for Treasury and International Banking; Chukwuma Nweke as the Executive Director, Retail Banking and Payments; and Chiugo Ndubisi as Group Chief Operating Officer.
A statement from the financial institution disclosed that the duo is joining the board as non-executive directors, though their appointments are subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Ms Hassan-Baba is a leading member of Nigeria legal profession, with decades of experience in public and private practice. She is an alumnus of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, and the University of London.
She chaired the committee that drafted the Nigerian Local Content in the non-oil Sector Policy between 2012 and 2016. She is a former state Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice.
Her appointment will make her the fifth female member of the board, further demonstrating UBA’s commitment to gender diversity.
On his part, Mr Kenneth Orji is a graduate of Economics from the University of Ibadan and an alumnus of the London School of Economics, where he graduated with a master’s degree in Accounting and Finance. He is armed with over 30 years of financial services experience.
Commenting on the appointments, Chairman of UBA, Mr Tony Elumelu, stated that, “We are delighted to welcome Aisha Hassan-Baba and Kenneth Orji to our board of directors.
Continuing, he said, “Kenneth Orji brings considerable experience of the pan-African market, having served as the Chairman of our subsidiary in Ghana and a director of UBA Senegal and UBA Kenya.
“Aisha Hassan-Baba has a distinguished history of public service, policy making and governance. Both appointments bring significant experience to the board, which will be a major asset to the group.”
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
