Stanbic IBTC to partner state govts on transformation agenda
Stanbic IBTC has said it is committed to development partnership with state governments, even as it is already tiding up business deal with Kaduna State.
The Chief Executive Officer, Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, Sola David-Borha, gave the assurance in a goodwill message she delivered at the inaugural Kaduna State Economic and Investment Summit, co-sponsored by the bank in Kaduna.
The Kaduna State Economic and Investment Summit, with the theme “Let’s Move Kaduna into the Global Economy”, was conceived by the state government to engage the private sector and fashion out a sustainable strategy for public private partnership that will help bring to fruition the developmental aspirations of the state. In a presentation, the state governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, had outlined the government’s economic agenda and vision as well as its development plans.
David-Borha said as a member of the over 150-year Standard Bank Group, Stanbic IBTC has a rich pedigree to tap into to deliver timely and sustainable results across the spectrum of financial services in the key focus sectors as outlined by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, in his opening presentation.
“We believe that our role as financial partners is to ensure the realisation of the vision that the state government has articulated. We have already begun partnership with Kaduna State in the area of small and medium scale enterprises and we would like to finance some of their agricultural projects,” David-Borha stated.
