Oba Akiolu, Subomi Balogun, Tinubu in Secret Meeting over First Bank’s new MD

With the recent statement from the corporate headquarters of First Bank Plc, of the intending exit of its current managing director, Mr. Bisi Onasanya in December 2015, major stakeholders of the first generation bank had in earnest, shopped for a new man to head the affairs of the financial institution after Onasanya.
According to Top News findings, a replacement has however been penciled down for the plum job, but the core investors of the bank are said to be keeping the identity close to their chests for now.
It was gathered that, on Saturday, July11, 2015, major stakeholders of the bank had a very confidential meeting at the early hours of the day. The men include His Royal Highness, Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos, the chairman of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) and the former governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Oba Akiolu came on Saturday morning in his usual flowing Agbada, while Asiwaju Tinubu adorned Islamic regalia on a white kaftan. Otunba Subomi Balogun who later joined the two senior citizens of Lagos, was in his usual snow white attire. They all had their private meeting on the 11th floor of the building for hours.
Also in attendance was Mr. Onasanya who was in suit, as well as the man that is believed, will take over the mantle of leadership from him. The new man is said to be a candidate of Oba Akiolu.
Reason for the Saturday meeting was to keep it away from the public, and it was also believed that, such day will give them the ample opportunity to inspect the on-going renovations at the building. The renovations, we hear will take four months.
First Bank, a foremost Nigerian banking institution, re-branded and also, ‘re-engineered’ its corporate drive to continuously meet customers’ satisfaction. The bank’s asset base is unarguably one of the strongest, with corporate offices spanning beyond Africa.
No doubt, First Bank’s reputation has grown tremendously under the leadership of Mr. Onasanya; an astute banker. Expectations from its teeming customers remain that, once Onasanya takes a bow in December, the bank continues in his meteoric rise.
