“Every one of us here (am sure) will agree that the NDIC Act needs to be amended. I want to assure you that when we resume plenary, the NDIC Act amendment Bill will be a top priority to us,” Senate President Ahmed Lawal said yesterday in his goodwill message at the public lecture and book presentation to mark the 30th anniversary of NDIC in Abuja.

“The National Assembly will always join hands with the NDIC not only to contribute to its success, but also ensure that its requests are given expeditious treatment,” he added.

Urging the NDIC not only to showcase its milestones, mandate and achievements to the general public, Senator Lawal asked the corporation to also rededicate itself to continuous engagement with the banking public by further educating them on its activities. This, he said is very critical as it will effectively contribute to the realization of NDIC’s core mandate of protecting bank depositors.

Co-founder of Access Bank, Aigboje Aig-imoukhuede who was the guest lecturer asked the monetary authorities to ease its monetary policies and manage the uncertainty issue around the foreign exchange for effective banking system.

“I do not believe that some of our policies are helping,” he said, adding, “We have to ease monetary policy and proactively manage the uncertainty around foreign exchange risk. We cannot bury our heads in the sand. We must stress test and ensure effective contingency planning. We must be proactive not reactive.”

Aig-imoukhuede said the Nigerian banking system is a huge highly flammable asset which is unfortunately in close proximity to several challenges capable of igniting a fire and we must take proactive steps to insulate this asset from the risks around us.
