We Have No Link To Any Political Party – WEMA Bank
Nigeria’s leading digital bank, Wema Bank Plc has reiterated that it has no link to any political party or politician in Nigeria.
In a statement sent to Thelagostimes, the bank reassured its stakeholders that it continues to operate with best-in-class governance processes.
The bank also faulted the premise on which a non-governmental organisation, Transparency Nigeria Group, asked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to remove its Managing Director/CEO, describing the call as baseless.
The bank further reassured its customers and stakeholders that it has and would continue to operate with the highest level of corporate governance, following all rules, policies, and procedures.
“We have no links to any political party and neither are we agents, allies or proxies of any politicians in the country. We are a financial institution solely committed to financial intermediation to enable and fast track the socio-economic development of the country,” the bank said.
According to the bank, its observance and strict adherence to due diligence and extant rules and regulations is why it is the oldest surviving indigenous bank in Nigeria.
