FINTECH ASSOCIATION ELECTS NEW GOVERNING COUNCIL MEMBERS

FinTech Association of Nigeria has elected new members of its governing council from different sectors to spearhead the affairs of the association for the next two years.

In a statement, it disclosed that the elections were overseen by the Board of Trustees Election Committee made up of reputable professionals such as former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ecobank, Patrick Akinwuntan; MD/CEO, Edfin MFB, Bunmi Lawson and Founder/CEO SystemSpecs, Dr John Obaro.

They were elected after an election process that was transparent, leveraging digital technology for all the processes. It noted that 21 new members of the GovCo were sworn in by the BOT of the association.

At the inauguration of the new GovCo, the Chairman of the BOT, Dr Segun Aina, admonished the new GovCo members to build on the success of past GovCos to position Nigeria as the Fintech destination for innovation and investment in Africa.

He further advised the new GovCo to come up with initiatives that would help solve the challenges of scarcity of technical and digital talents, deepen engagements with the regulators and widen the membership net, rallying every stakeholder to amplify the one-voice drive of the association. He added that the new members of the GovCo should continue to provide leadership for the take-off of more national Fintech associations in Africa. The re-elected president of the association, Ade Bajomo, said, “The core objectives of the association are to accelerate, connect and advocate for FinTechs and that GovCo will strategically leverage on and sustain the existing successes, create new initiatives and enrich the relationships with diverse stakeholders including the regulators to grow the ecosystem.”
