In a continuous bid to sensitise the public about Non-Interest Banking, Sterling Bank is organising a one day public lecture titled, “Reducing Poverty and unemployment through Non-Interest Banking”. The event which is slated for January 15th, will take place at the Meena Event Centre, Kano.
According to sources close to the lender, this is part of the bank’s commitment to further deepen the awareness and public enlightenment of alternative finance or Non-Interest Banking (NIB) in Nigeria.
Speaking on why the bank endeavours to sensitise the public about NIB, the Chief Host of the lecture and Executive Director, Finance and Strategy, Sterling Bank, Mr Abubakar Suleiman, disclosed that the Bank will continue to intensify efforts to sell the Sterling Alternative Finance offerings to customers and prospects while remaining a reference institution in the area of Non-Interest banking not only in Africa but globally.
The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is expected to headline the Public lecture as the Royal father of the day, while the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdulahi Umar Ganduje will be the Special Guest of Honor.
In the same vein, seasoned Scholars and policy makers on all aspects of Non-Interest banking will present papers and make valuable contributions to the discourse.
Sterling Bank commenced Non-Interest Banking in 2013 when the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) granted it the license to operate the window.
