President Muhammed Buhari has believed that the award “Distinguished Alumnus of the Year” given to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, First Bank, Dr Adesola Adeduntan is a vote of confidence on Nigerian professionals, many of who rank among the very best in the world.
This was disclosed on the statement released from the State House on Wednesday while felicitating with the leadership of the Bank on this tremendous recognition by Cranfield School of Management, United Kingdom.
The President said the fact that Cranfield School of Management is giving Adeduntan the award because he “exemplifies the values of the school,” and serves as “role model to students and potential students”.
President Buhari believed, it is an endorsement that should make every Nigerian proud.
Adeduntan attended Cranfield School of Management in 2004 as British Chevening Scholar. He is a Fellow of Chartered Institute of Banking of Nigeria (CIBN) and Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).
