efficient whistle blowing mechanism that ensures a high level of integrity and transparency. See our Whistle Blower policy here

and rights. The Bank has a Whistle blowing channel via the bank’s website, dedicated telephone hotlines and
e-mail address in compliance with Section 220.127.116.11 of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Code of Corporate
