ACAMB’s First National Stakeholder Conference on Synergy between Nigerian Banking Sector and PAHO to be Held on August 3 – WorldStage


The Association of Corporate Affairs Managers of Banks (ACAMB) asserts that continued engagement and communication between the Organized Private Sector (OPS) and the banking sector will foster the desired sustainable growth and development of the economy.

Mr. Rasheed Bolarinwa, Chairman of ACAMB revealed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Sunday.

Bolarinwa said Nigeria would be the main beneficiary of the high-level meeting between the banks and PAHO as stakeholders seek to find lasting solutions to the constraints between the two key sectors of the economy.

He said the first-ever National Stakeholder Conference on Synergy between the Nigerian Banking Sector and PAHO would be held on August 3, 2022.

Bolarinwa said the first-ever conference would give birth to far-reaching strategies that would help unlock several opportunities for the Nigerian economy.

He said the conference would be organized by ACAMB – the association of banking, marketing communications and reputation management companies; in partnership with other stakeholders including the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN).

Bolarinwa said, “Nigeria will be the main beneficiary of the high-level meeting between banks and the organized private sector, as stakeholders seek to find lasting solutions to the constraints between the two key sectors of the economy.”

He said the conference to be held at Bankers House, Victoria Island, Lagos, would bring together top players from banking and PAHO to act as a think tank for the macroeconomic growth of the country.

Bolarinwa said the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, would be the keynote speaker.

He added that the presidents of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN), NACCIMA, Institute of Directors (IoD) and Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) would be the keynote speakers.

He said the strategic panelists would be led by sector leaders, which would cross-cut with banking players and OPS, including NECA, NASSI and NASME, among others.

He also said that the main plenary session will be moderated by the top economist, Dr Biodun Adedipe.

“We provide an open platform for both sectors to voice and ventilate their fears, interests, expectations and opportunities that will benefit both sectors, the national economy and Nigeria as a whole.

“At the end of the session, we expect a strong statement that will provide a roadmap for a new relationship between the banking sector and PAHO,” Bolarinwa said.

According to him, the OPS is a valued player in the banking sector, because the banking sector and the organized private sector play a major role in the growth of the economy.

“Therefore, it is necessary for the two sectors to work closely together.

“The conference provides a unique platform for private sector players and the banking community to share their views on the synergy, communication, cooperation and mutual understanding between these two critical segments of the Nigerian economy which can be improved for the benefit of the Nigerian people and economy gradually.

“ACAMB reaches out to all key stakeholders to ensure inclusiveness and maximization of capacity.

“We will persist in generating innovative and creative initiatives to promote the growth and development of the banking sector and the national economy,” Bolarinwa said.

He urged the media to join in the new paradigm shift of engagements with critical industry stakeholders, describing the media as key to creating mutual understanding.
