Pls check the Picture and name you put as the Group MD of FBN Holding. He has fidelity bank badge!
Right name (Nnamdi Okonkwo) but wrong picture- former MD of Fidelity and now Group MD of FBN Holdings. A more recent picture of his should have been used.
Access has since released her results. We are now at the end of May and FBN has not released her results. Neither has there been any update.
Isn’t there a reason to be worried?
