“Following our rigorous transformation, we are now better positioned to deliver on our promise to be a trusted financial partner. We remain dedicated to the success of our customers and assure you of our consistent efforts towards the provision of simpler and  smarter banking services that help our customers succeed,“ he said.

Addressing stakeholders at the seminar, Partner and West Africa Tax Leader at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), Taiwo Oyedele provided further enlightenment on the changes in the Nigerian tax space, implications for stakeholders and how
businesses can  adapt to be able to  accommodate the changes.
