The Ethics Challenge took place at the FirstAcademy, FirstBank’s strategic platform for competence development, knowledge management and workplace culture change.

FirstBank said the vent also aligns with its commitment to ethics, professional excellence, capacity building and inclusive growth of Nigerians, even as it underpins the bank’s core values of entrepreneurship, professionalism, integrity and customer service.

FirstBank Group Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, FirstBank, Folake Ani-Mumuney asserted that FirstBank’s Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability focus areas of People Empowerment and Education are in line with CFA’s promotion of educational excellence.

“Core to our educational interventions is the Bank’s Endowment programme which has instituted Professorial Chairs in academic fields in several universities across our geopolitical zones and also facilitated infrastructural development in some of these universities to complement government’s efforts in educational development. FirstBank remains committed to partnering with initiatives that will drive the sustainable development of education in our nation,” she enthused.

Also speaking, President, CFA Society Nigeria, Banji Fehintola, said banking thrives on trust and such trust must be sustained by bankers at all times.
