Lagos Branch

The Lagos Branch of Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria, (CIBN) was established in November 1963 as Lagos Local Centre of the London Institute of Bankers through the initiative of dedicated and committed bankers and support of the Bankers’ Committee which comprised all the licensed banks in Nigeria and the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The Lagos Centre made up of 124 members then lived up to the expectation of a local centre by having as its focus, the continuing education and training of its members. This local centre formed the nucleus of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria which was registered in 1976, formerly launched in 1977, and Chartered on 18th May, 1990 with the promulgation of Decree No. 12 of 1990 by the Federal Military Government of Nigeria. The Lagos Branch formerly took off on the 20th May, 1978 as the premier Branch, and has since then be playing leading roles in the affairs of the Institute.

The Branch pioneered creation of other branches in major towns across the country. The Institute now has a membership of about 70,000, 65% of which are members of Lagos Branch.
