Ibrahim said the Corporation was established in 1989 to promote public confidence in the banking industry; contribute to the stability of the financial system, as well as ensure an orderly resolution of failed financial institutions.
He urged the Association to collaborate with the NDIC to accelerate the pace of financial literacy and financial inclusion among the Nigerian public noting that about 40% of Nigerians are currently operating outside the formal financial system.
