Tech expert tasks Bankers on digital skills

Mr Niyi Yusuf, Managing Partner, Verraki Business Solution for Africa, has urged Bankers to develop and improve their digital skills if they want to remain relevant in their career.

Yusuf gave the advice virtually at the 2021 Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) Graduates’ Induction and Prize Awards Day, on Saturday in Lagos.

The event had “Breaking New Grounds: Positioning for Global Competitiveness” as its theme.
