The Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria has partnered FinTechNGR and Fintech Development and Advocacy Initiative, on a tripartite agreement to promote professionalism and competencies in the financial sector of the economy.

In a statement, the President, CIBN, Dr. Ken Opara, disclosed this on Wednesday at a conference in Lagos.

Okpara said that it was the first time the institute was collaborating with two partners at once for the provision of certification.

He said, “I consider today a unique day in the annals of the institute. First, this is the first time the institute is collaborating with two partners at once for the provision of a certification. Secondly, this is the first collaboration agreement to be executed during my tenure.

“This initiative is a further step towards the realisation of the mandate of the institute to promote professionalism while enhancing knowledge and competencies in the financial services ecosystem.”

He reiterated the determination of the organisation to be the bridge that would engender positive handshake among all the players in the sector through capacity building, programmes, trainings, content development and sound corporate governance policies among others.

Opara added, “Under this agreement, the three institutions have come together to award fintech certification which offers an excellent opportunity to bridge the tech talent gap and indeed further drive the implementation of the competency framework in the banking and finance industry in Nigeria.”

He applauded the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers Committee for appointing the institute as the accreditation agency for the implementation of the competency framework.

Opara said that the organisation was determined to make a success of the assignment, which, according to him, would lead to service delivery.
