Sterling Bank appoints axed First Bank director, Olusola Oworu

Sterling Bank has appointed Olusola Oworu, the former Independent Director at First Bank of Nigeria (FBN), who was also the former Special Adviser on Commerce & Industry to erstwhile Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola.

Oworu was appointed into Sterling Bank board as an Independent Non-Executive Director, a statement released by the company to the capital market authority, NGX, on Wednesday, disclosed.

She was part of the First Bank of Nigeria board members axed by Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), in April 2021, during a faceoff between the firm and the financial regulator over unauthorised appointments and dismissals.
