Nigeria’s most innovative bank, Wema Bank Plc, has launched the Leadership Development School as an addition to its Purple Academy to help in the overall development and transformation of its workforce.


Speaking at the formal opening ceremony of the leadership school, the Managing Director/CEO of the bank, Mr. Ademola Adebise, said organisations have a huge task to optimise performance and deliver value in contemporary times, pointing out that leadership is key in driving organisational success.


Adebise said we need good leaders to blend the various skills of the employees for the advancement of an organisation and its business success.


Speaking about the increasing complexity of the financial services industry, Adebise said both local and external macroeconomic dynamics have changed business models, and we need strong leadership to direct the workforce and lead the people to deliver.


He assured the public that the bank would continue to leverage local and international partnerships to make the leadership school the home of excellence.
