CBN sacks CEOS and management of five Nigerian banks

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has dismissed the Chief Executive Officcers and other top management of five major Nigerian Banks. The banks are Intercontinental Bank, Union Bank, Afri Bank, Oceanic Bank and Fin Bank.

This appears to be the first step in a drastic plan to clean up Nigeria’s ailing banking industry.

The news comes at a time when the CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, a risk management expert is preparing to sit down for a meeting with all the Chairmen and Chief Executives of all twenty five of Nigeria’s banks, later today in Lagos. Our sources say that no proxy representation is allowed at the meeting and this has forced many Chairmen and CEOs many of whom were on holiday abroad to fly back to Nigeria in the last twenty four hours.

Now the chicken has finally come home to roost for these five banks

Hope that will do these banks and their customers good.

CBN has that power? How?
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by otokx(m): 12:48pm On Aug 14, 2009
Is this really true?
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by IFELEKE(m): 12:51pm On Aug 14, 2009
it's still unconfirmed!.
The CBN governor and top officials of the apex bank are meeting with the CEOs presently in Lagos.
so poster,
Don't raise unnecessary alarm.

@kobojunkie

www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-309816.0.html

@ifeleke
unless its re-confirmed to be untrue, sources say its true and the list of reasons is much whcih even carries prosecution. as at this moment, its labelled true.
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by Emperoh(m): 1:22pm On Aug 14, 2009
I hope this ain't true!!
Union and Intercontinental Bank especially. . . . .this will cause panick amongst its customers!!
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by Jarus(m): 1:28pm On Aug 14, 2009
I opened NL to break this news. It is true o!!!

Sanusi fired a major salvo.

Akingbola gone, Cecilia fired, Nwosu sacked, Adigwe and Ebong shown the exit door. Jim Ovia fired warning.

This is confirmed. No link yet. But I'm very sure. Top finance executives here have confirmed it.

This is serious. Sanusi is stepping on toes.

Cecilia, the amazon of Nigerian banking!!! Akingbola, CIBN president and NSE Vice President!!!

The battle line is drawn. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

so poster,
Don't raise unnecessary alarm.

Ifeleke, i have always said that you are out of touch with reality. This is confirmed and Erastus Akingbola has resigned this morning. I fully expect EFCC to make some arrest subsequently. If some of you guys go back to my post as far back as last year, i have always predicted this would happen. I expect to see more banks other than these 5 to face serious heat from the federal Government. Bank workers, you better sit tight the days of bounty are long gone. This new guy at CBN means business and my sources are telling me that he is focus on re-capitalizing the bank to 10 banks in Nigeria. Even the so-called GTB and First bank are not that safe. believe it or not. I wonder why everybody is surprise that Union bank is among the 5 banks. Union bank will soon be sold to foreign investors.

Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by upson(m): 1:33pm On Aug 14, 2009
CEOs of the following Nigeria banks have just been axed by CBN.

The news will soon be made public at close of meeting currently being held in Lagos today with all the CEOs and Chairmen in attendance.

(This is from reliable source and surely by evening it would be awash in all evening newspapers)

They are - Intercontinental bank Plc, Zenith bank Plc, UBA Plc, Oceanic bank Plc and Wema bank Plc

Likewise, further policy amendments and pronouncements will follow in the course of the new week.
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by asha80(m): 1:34pm On Aug 14, 2009
@Jarus

Do you know any reason Zenithbank was not affected?

u didnt predict the sacking of the MDs, you predicted that 9ja banks will collapse in 12 months!

Your 12 months don expire tey tey and no bank has gone under
except u wanna call this exercise banks going under
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by abhosts(m): 1:39pm On Aug 14, 2009
So what is the implication of the sacking?

This guy is a clown. When the federal Govt. takes over a bank, what does that mean?? I predicted all this late last year and it's not even up to a year yet. Intercontinental was secretly bailed out early this year and yet they couldn't pull through. Intercontinental would have closed shop since march if not for the help from Soludo. I fully expect Intercontinental to be swallowed by another bank or sold to a foreign investor.

my friend, nothin is going to happen
It seems you dont know who Sanusi is.

The man has always been a top dawg from his FBN days. What influence can Akingbola and Cecilia wield in 9ja that Sanusi cannot counter.
Thts a big up to the self styled risk man!

im doffin ma hat already. hes the best man for that position.

Sanusi is a professional not all these agbero/political bankers we have around

Central banks/reserves bank have such powers
they can take control  of banks management as deem fit, they can be challenged in the court though. Wema bank crises is an example
okay
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by abhosts(m): 1:45pm On Aug 14, 2009
Why is your own list different. Please dont scare us. I have a sizable sum in Zenith O.

hehehehehe
taking over the reins of a bank for a specified period for managerial ineffectiveness and other ills wouldnt translate to bankruptcy or illiquidity
i know some of them have been in trouble for various reasons but what is happening is far from what you predicted

Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by otokx(m): 1:48pm On Aug 14, 2009
now there is an agreement that 5 banks are affected of which intercontinental and oceanic seem to be a common denominator but which other 3 are there?

This is actually not shocking to me, I expected it all along.
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by FBS: 1:51pm On Aug 14, 2009
For real? Interesting to know what they did wrong? Cecilia Ibru?
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by babalawo(m): 1:53pm On Aug 14, 2009
This appears to be the first step in a drastic plan to clean up Nigeria’s ailing banking industry.

The truth is that  the banking sector needs an ICU-intensive centre Unit-Surgery, its just the timing that is a big  problem for me.

This timiing wil  GRAVELY and definately affect innocent depositors,staffs and investors- Lets wait and see the extent this will go,
Re: CBN Sacks CEOs And Management Of Five Banks by sayso(m): 1:53pm On Aug 14, 2009
I understand that the maximum number of years one will stay as CEO/MD is 15 years and some of this guys have spent more that 15 years,so no worry,is the rules.
