The Chairman, Ecobank Nigeria Limited, John Aboh, has disclosed that the objective of the board is to ensure that the bank becomes one of the top three in the country in the next few years.

Speaking at the Board of Directors’ Dinner in honour of new and immediate past directors of Ecobank Nigeria in Lagos recently, Aboh reiterated that the bank was putting in place various initiatives and strategies to realise the set objective. He assured that all hands were on the deck to ensure the bank assume its dream within a few years.

According to the Ecobank Chairman, the bank’s desire was predicated on its current growth trajectory reflected on its key financial indexes within the Ecobank Group results for the last quarter of 2015.

For Aboh the board has a clear and specific mandate to ensure Ecobank Nigeria moves from its present number six position in total assets to Top 3 bank in assets and profitability in the country and “everyone is working assiduously towards the realization of this goal. I make bold to say that with the current management, human resources and strategies in place, we will surely achieve our goal in the next few years.”

A statement from Ecobank Nigeria also lauded the founders and past directors for their contributions to the present growth of the bank.

“Your achievements speak volumes. We will continue to appreciate your sacrifice, efforts and doggedness for taking our bank to another level. We will continue to consolidate on your achievements and carry on with your dream. We are proud of you all,” he stated.
