It was given the award in the Annual Banking Awards organized by Businessday newspapers.
Now in its second year, the Annual Banking Awards seeks to reward banks and bankers that have made significant contributions to the industry.
In his address, Mr. Philip Isakpa, Executive Director/CEO of BusinessDay newspapers, said the vision of the Banking Awards was "to practice professionalism, recognize professionalism and reward professionalism."
He noted that following the 2008/09 banking sector reforms, the organizers instituted the awards to support the progressive efforts of Nigerian banks so that the errors of the past were not repeated.
Isakpa noted that the 2014 awards extended its focus from core banking to embrace non-financial institutions such as mortgage and microfinance banks who help deepen the country's export trade financing, as well as retired bank executives that have contributed to the growth of the Nigerian banking industry.
