CIBN Spokesman, Nelson Olagundoye, said in a statement that new officers who would run the affairs of the Institute for two years would be elected at the virtually online meeting at 10a.m.
“In line with the Institute’s tradition, Chairmen and Chief Executives of banks and past presidents of the Institute have been invited to join the online meeting while the 2020 Election shall be conducted via an off-site electronic voting system.
Others similarly expected are presidents of various professional bodies, top government functionaries, fellows, honourary senior members, associates, international organisations and other relevant stakeholders.
“By this, voters can vote from the comfort of their homes in any part of the globe.
“The voting will commence at 12.01am on Wednesday, April 1, and close at 12.01am on Saturday, April 4.
“The election notification message have been sent to eligible voters via email and/or SMS to exercise their franchise,” Olagundoye said.
He added that the AGM would consider the Annual Reports and Accounts of 2019 operational performance of the Institute and other important matters affecting the industry and the welfare of members.
Olagundoye said the institute hoped that its members all over the world would join in the meeting and participate actively in the exercise in the interest of the institute and banking profession.
He said that the event, which would be live streamed via the Institute’s Official Youtube Channel, would have the Registrar/Chief Executive, Mr Seye Awojobi, as the Chief Host.
