The Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) has reiterated its
resolve to strengthen banking and
finance education in the country
through the injection of professionalism into the teaching and learning of the course.

The CIBN Bankers Hall was commissioned at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye on Tuesday, 25 July, 2023.

The exquisite ultramodern edifice
is a legacy project bestowed to the university by The Chartered Institute of
Bankers of Nigeria.

The state-of-the-art edifice is one of
the seven model projects across the six
geo-political zones endowed to various
institutions by the Institute.

Olabisi Onabanjo University was
chosen based on its pioneering role as
the first tertiary institution in the CIBN
linkage programme.

The smart, ultramodern edifice,
which serves as a lecture theatre,
demonstration class and multipurpose centre was commissioned by the President/Chairman of Council
of CIBN, Ken Opara, Ph.D, FCIB and
the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of
Council, Olabisi Onabanjo University,
Prof. Oluwatoyin Ashiru.

While performing the commissioning ceremony, the Pro-Chancellor and
Chairman of Council, Olabisi Onabanjo University expressed his profound
appreciation for the thoughtful gesture
of the CIBN and their extraordinary
act of philanthropy and corporate responsibility.

“This noble gesture identifies with
the spirit of collaboration between
the Academia and Corporate world.
By working together Academia and
Industry can bridge the gap between
theoretical knowledge and practical
application”.

In his remarks, Opara congratulated
Olabisi Onabanjo University for being
the first tertiary institution in the CIBN
linkage institution, an accomplishment
which amongst others afforded the Institution the rare privilege of being one of the beneficiaries of the Institute’s Legacy Project.
