President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of Engineer Uzoma Nwagba as the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Consumer Credit Corporation (CREDICORP).

In a statement on Friday, the presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, said the appointment is in line with President Tinubu’s dedicated efforts to ensure financial inclusion and economic prosperity for the majority of Nigerians.

The statement said Nwagba holds a Master’s of Business Administration from the Harvard Business School and a first-class Bachelor’s of Engineering from Howard University, Washington DC.

Prior to his appointment, Nwagba served as the Chief Operating Officer of the Bank of Industry, in charge of driving micro-credit and other financial interventions at the institution.

The 36-year-old had also served as a Senior Investment Associate, specializing in financial services (banking, insurance, pensions) at the African Capital Alliance.

Engineer Nwagba was a Software Engineer at Microsoft, where he led multiple teams charged with building enterprise and mobile software for emerging markets (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, and Nigeria), before his transition to finance.

The President expects the new Chief Executive Officer of this critical agency to bring to bear his wealth of experience in finance and technology, as well as his record in driving financial interventions across Nigeria in this new role in order to expand access to credit to all classes of Nigerian citizens.
