IAMTN invited to address 2nd Global Bankers Conference on the Nigerian Banking Reforms


IAMTN’s ceo Lady Olga Maitland has been invited to address the Second Global Bankers Conference on the Nigeria Banking Reforms which will take place at the Dorchester Hotel, London on 29th and 30th March.

Among the issues to be discussed will be the on-going banking reforms, new payment systems, anti-fraud and anti corruption initiatives.

Says Lady Olga:”It is a tribute to the role of the International Association of Money Transfer Networks that we have been invited to make a contribution to a very important debate on how to smooth the path of money transfers as well as tackling effectively financial crime..”

`”The conference is also significant in recognising the role of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria took in reducing 85 poorly managed banks into 25 effective ones, all of which was achieved in a mere 18 months. The task now is to convince the international community that banking in Nigeria has turned a corner. This could be particularly helpful to those who rely on the banking system to send millions of pounds back to Nigeria.”

“The fact that Nuhu Ribadu, Chairman of the Economic and Financial Cimes Commission will be a leading speaker indicates the seriousness the country takes in fighting theft and corruption.”

Other speakers who will be taking part include:

• Baroness Lynda Chalker of Wallesey, Chairman Africa Matters
• Dr Kenneth Ge, general manager of Bank of China, UK
• Mark Smith, director of Travelex plc
• Mary Patricia Azevedo, Associate General Counsel and Senior Vice President of First Data Corporation
