May 25, 2010 Editor 0
Cecilia Ibru, CEO of Nigeria’s Oceanic Bank International, is no stranger to crisis: she has dealt with the challenges arising from the present global recession in the context of Nigeria’s efforts at tackling issues—poverty, civil unrest, and corruption—that have kept roughly 70 percent of the country’s population below the poverty line.
In this interview, Ibru discusses the current challenges of managing a bank in Africa, where the global economic crisis meets an ongoing local crisis of development challenges.
