It was praises galore for the Bank of Industry when the Bank’s management team led by the institution’s Managing Director/CEO visited the Executive Governor of Oyo State, His Excellency, Senator Abiola Ajimobi at the Government House in Ibadan.
Oyo State is one of the Bank’s domestic development partners. The two parties met to review their relationship which started since the inception of Senator Abiola Ajimobi’s administration in 2011.
While commending the Bank of Industry’s support for the State Government’s economic development efforts, especially in providing financial assistance and business development support services to micro, small and medium enterprises in the State, Governor Ajimobi appealed for more support of the Bank, particularly in the area of agribusiness.
In response, the MD/CEO, Ms Evelyn Oputu, stated that the visit was to evaluate their joint development initiatives and expressed the Bank’s readiness to further support the State Government in its efforts at improving the well being of its people especially through entrepreneurship development and the processing of the State’s vast agricultural and mineral resources.
