Others elected were members of the statutory audit committee.
Addressing the shareholders, the bank’s Chairman, Alhaji Adebayo Jimoh, explained that the name change is in line with the bank’s short and mid-term strategic focus, to enhance brand visibility and acceptability, and also reinforce its national outlook.
In his address, the Managing Director thanked the shareholders for the confidence reposed on him and the new management team.
He stated that despite the economic headwinds and challenges of COVID -19, the bank is poised to delivering excellent customer experience, as well as superior returns to shareholders in the year 2020.
Also speaking at the event, the Group Chief Executive of CITI TRUST Holdings Plc, the bank’s core investors, Mr Yemi Adefisan, said that his group preferred to invest in Omoluabi Mortgage Bank, among others considered, due to the bank’s healthy balance sheet and strong corporate governance practices.
