About Bank Directors’ Association of Nigeria
seeks to promote sustainable banking best practices within Banks in Nigeria, and collaborate with regulatory agencies and other stakeholders to ensure the public’s interest. BDAN is the only umbrella body of Bank Directors in Nigeria which has created a platform for members to articulate Directors’ views and make representations to the regulatory authorities on issues that affect the individual directors and industry
as a whole.
BDAN is a product of the decisions reached at one of the annual Continued Education Programme (CEP) for] Directors of Banks and Financial Institution in the late 1990s.
BDAN was established at the 13th Annual Bank Directors Seminar held in Abuja in June 1997 under the auspices of the industry regulators, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), and high level support from FITC.
The Association was set up with the primary aim of providing an effective forum for improving the knowledge and competence of bank Directors, in order to promote honourable practices within the Nigerian banking industry. BDAN is governed by a twelve man Governing Council which includes representatives of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) and FITC.
