What a man can do, it’s often said that a woman can even do better. The women folk in Nigeria, especially in the banking sector, have been giving their counterparts on the other side of their gender an equal run for their money.
Gone are theays when the banking world in Nigeria was overly dominated by the men, from the lower rungs of the officer cadre to the highest level of management. These days, several young ladies with strong and solid academic and professional pedigrees, now occupy sensitive and very demanding positions hitherto occupied by the men. The trio of Ibukun Awosika, Osaretin Demuren and Mosun Belo-Olusoga are lending more credence to the assertion by women of attaining equal or even more productivity potential like the men; and this is no attempt to run down or belittle the men, who are still proving their mettle in the volatile banking world. At First Bank, GTBank and Access Bank, these industrious, enterprising and very active women who sway as the chairman, board of directors of their respective banks and they are not disappointing the shareholder by any stretch of imagination or suspicion. This is on account of their rising performance indices since they came on board at their respective banks and they are not leaving any one in doubt that they still have more in stock to take their bank to the next higher level; and this could be serving as a pointer to other banks and corporate bodies that women could indeed be better managers at the highest echelon of administrative and executives organogram. The women have been arrived and they are showing positive stiff competition to their men folk on the corporate ladder. Little wonder, since this photograph went rivalry it has attracted and generated rave review and comment from several national and international bodies especially those that take the issue of women strongly. And this is a positive sign dthat there is much in stock for the women in the nearest future.
