What others say about : List of Dividends Announced So Far In 2017 (Updated April 21st, 2017)..


Gtb 2016 year end final dividend has been announced, yet to announce the closure, payment & AGM dates. Hope it will be posted on this page before today is out.


Love this website. I come here every day to get information on the Nigerian Economic and Financial happenings.


I am highly disappointed in the management of Fidelity bank. The bank is yet to release its last year full result (2016 FY), while other Banks are about releasing their First Quarter result for 2017. This is bad press for the Bank.
