RIMAN, CIBN move to strengthen risk management in banks

By on December 8, 2015

The Risk Management Association of Nigeria (RIMAN) and the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) have sealed an agreement to commence training of certified risk managers in the country.

The arrangement was reached after RIMAN and CIBN executed an agreement, which binds both parties to the risk management training project, at the CIBN’s head office Lagos, recently. The first set of examination is expected to take off by April 2016.

“The joint certification has been designed to address emerging and contemporary issues in risk management whilst paying attention to global comparability in terms of scope and national relevance, in terms of local content,” the President and Chairman of Council, CIBN, Mrs. ‘Debola Osigbogun, said.

“This infusion of local content into the curriculum is what differentiates this programme from others available in the market,” she added, saying further that the central objective of the initiative was to adequately equip recipients with requisite knowledge and skills for a successful career in risk management.

On his part, the President of RIMAN, Mr. Jude Monye, was full of gratitude for the agreement.

“I want to say thank you,” he said. “CIBN has given us a baton, and it is a vision that we will run with.”
