Four Retired Directors Honoured By UBA

The United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc during the weekend honoured four of It’s retiring directors like the saying goes “Give honour to whom honour is Due” while restating Its commitment to ensuring strong corporate governance across the banking group.

The four directors who had put in their full service to the growth of the firm over the past 40 years were celebrated for their collective efforts and remarkable contributions and service to the group.

The retired non-executive directors are in the persons of:

Mrs Rose Okwechime, Ambassador Kunle Olumide, Alhaji Jaafaru Paki and Mr. Yahaya Zekeri.

They were treated to a cocktail and dinner party attended by top players in the private and public sectors at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja at the weekend.

The Group Chairman in the person of Mr. Tony Elumelu in his speech during the occasion applauded and commended the remarkable contributions of the retired directors who have upheld the Bank’s corporate policies towards the actualization of the Group’s targets and goals.


He further explained “Without the support given by the retiring directors, we may not be where we are today. Their investment and advisory services with the legacy Standard Trust Bank which later grew into today’s UBA, cannot be understated.”

The Group’s Managing Director, Mr. Kennedy Uzoka also gave a speech on behalf of the Group how the retiring directors contributions will be missed when he said: “Tonight, we are happy but not too happy. We are happy because employees of this financial empire have come together to celebrate some great people who have contributed to building the franchise that we have today and not too happy because we are going to miss you”
