The Senate had last December confirmed the appointment of Mrs Ronke Sokefun as chairman of the board of the NDIC.
Members of the NDIC board include Festus Keyamo (SAN), Alhaji Garba Bello, Bri.-Gen. Josef Okoloagu, Mr Mustapha Mudashiru, and Mr Adewale Adeleke.
Responding on behalf of her board members, Sokefun assured the minister that they would put their wealth of experience to impact positively on the corporation’s overall mandate.
“I want to assure the minister and all stakeholders of Nigeria financial system that we will live up to the responsibility repose on us by Mr President.
“We will bring our wealth of experience to bear on the corporation and the Nigerian banking system particularly in the discharge of the corporation’s mandate to ensure strict compliance with corporate governance principle,” she added.
