Prior to the 2020 programme, 40 exemplary staff had successfully participated in the SMDP. 23 staff graduated in the inaugural edition that held in 2017 and the 2018 programme had 17 graduands.

Adesola Adeduntan, chief executive officer of the bank, has expressed delight with the performance of the third set of the graduates of the programme, saying that the set’s performance and response to the various trainings and initiatives have been very impressive and exemplary.

“The set has demonstrated the gold standard of value and excellence in banking services which FirstBank stands for. The SMDP has been an insightful and impactful journey for the Bank and the participants,” he said.

Adedutan further encouraged each graduand to maximise the experience and knowledge garnered from the program as they build on their individual and collective contribution to the Bank’s continued growth as well as its efforts in enabling and impacting Nigeria, and the Africa continent at large.
