S&P Global Ratings said changes to the boards of First Bank of Nigeria Limited and FBN Holdings (FBNH) Plc, recently directed by Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), addressed the banking group’s corporate governance challenges and ensures the Nigerian banking sector’s financial stability.

In a statement, it stated that its ratings on FBN and other Nigerian banks remain constrained by shortcomings in corporate governance and transparency, among other factors.

The CBN recently replaced the entire boards of FBN and FBNH, and reinstated the former executive directors and CEO, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan.

The CBN had also requested FBN unwind certain exposures and divest from its participation in a non-permissible company, also pointing to potential corporate governance lapses at the bank.

“However, Dr. Adeduntan’s reinstatement and the re-appointment of the other executive directors underscores the CBN’s confidence in the existing management team to continue the turnaround of the third-largest banking group in Nigeria, which has total assets of Nigerian N7.7 trillion.

“We are of the view that the CBN’s historical approach has been more reactive than proactive, as illustrated by the Skye Bank episode. That said, recent actions, while disruptive in the near-term, may signal a more direct and possibly decisive supervisory approach to alleged failings in the management and governance of regulated institutions,” it stated.

It, noted that FBN’s overall credit profile has gradually stabilised since 2016, with a capital adequacy ratio of 17 percent in 2020, as against a 15 percent minimum requirement.

Similarly, the bank’s asset quality indicators improved significantly, with Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) reducing to 7.7 percent in 2020, from 20-25 percent since 2016.

- Speaker says Nigeria's current challenges should further unite the citizens


- Advises President Buhari to act on requests by Southern governors


- Expresses belief in a better Nigeria and calls for prayers for the country


Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Mudashiru Obasa, has appealed to Nigerians to see the country's current challenges as an opportunity to further unite them saying this is a sure way to national progress.


Speaker Obasa made the appeal in a statement on Wednesday to commemorate this year's Eid-el-Fitr celebrated by Muslims across the world.


Obasa expressed belief that the security and economic challenges Nigeria is faced with at the moment are a face from which the country would come out stronger.


He also advised President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently act on the requests recently made by the Southern Governors Forum as a way to curb rising insecurity in the country.


According to the former chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures in Nigeria, "President Buhari should not only give a thought to the requests made by the governors, he should also implement them for the country to move forward.


Appealing to the citizens of the country not to lose faith and hope, the Speaker said: "This year's Ramadan afforded many of us the opportunity to pray for the country. It is obvious that the country has some challenges.


"However, the challenges should not be left to the government alone. Every citizen of Nigeria is important and must play that positive role that would ultimately move the country from where it is now to where we want it to be.


"We are a religious set of people and  the religions practised in the country teach us to live in love and peace with one another as well as be our neighbours' brothers and sisters.


"More than ever, we have the responsibility to make the country habitable, devoid of criminal elements, and we must be resolute on this."


The Speaker congratulated Muslims in Nigeria for witnessing the end of the Ramadan.


"Beyond the celebration, let us all endlessly practise the virtues of love, obey the commandments of Allah, ensure a peaceful, progressive and prosperous Nigeria and continue to pray to God for more grace," Obasa urged.
