A leading financial services provider, Providus Bank has restated its commitment to growing Nigeria’s export-based economy.
Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Walter Akpani, made the promise at the financial institution’s hybrid third Non-Oil Export Summit in Lagos.
Akpani, who was represented by the Deputy Managing Director, Kingsley Aigbokhaevbo, said the summit series was introduced as part of the lender’s desire for continuous collaboration with major stakeholders in the non-oil export space.
According to him, the summit enables the bank to solidify its support for its stakeholders in agri-business, mining and metals, African fashion and general trading businesses in Nigeria, thereby creating opportunities for growth in export volumes and trade earnings.
Speaking at the event themed, ‘The Pathway to Growing Non-Oil Export in Nigeria’, the ProvidusBank boss, said the latest edition followed previous successful ones held in the fourth quarter of 2022 and in the second quarter of 2023.
“As a future-forward bank, we have advanced in our support for export business through template settings and other ambitious strategies to gain a significant share of the market in the Business.
“This event is therefore in the advancement of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) objectives towards a sustainable and self-sufficient growth in non-oil export business in Nigeria”.
