Ajibola said, “We are looking up to the operators in the capital market to assist us in convincing the whole world about the importance of investing in the Stock Exchange.”
He explained that the 22nd edition of the World Conference of Banking Institute to be hosted by Nigeria in April next year would be a good opportunity to showcase the country’s potentials, adding that It would be an opportunity to showcase the investment
opportunities in the country and to correct certain wrong impressions about Nigeria.

of the CIBN in the economy, Ajibola said that the institute was mandated to play some critical roles in the Nigerian state.
