UBA’s board of directors, and management in recognition of the high level integrity Ogbanago displayed at his work place recently gathered to honour him.

And at the weekend, the chairman of the bank, Tony Elumelu, posted pictures of the occasion where the bank honoured Ogbanago, and commended him.

“Last month, Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago, a security guard at the @ubagroup branch in Oba Akran, found $10,000 belonging to a customer outside on the ground at his branch. In an unparalleled display of his own integrity, he decided to return the money, preserving the integrity of the bank.

“When I heard about this story, I knew I had to meet the man who despite facing rising petrol & transportation prices and “tomato ebola” returned such a huge sum of money without recourse to himself. It was a pleasant surprise to hear him tell this story and about how he came to be in the board room with us. Even more surprising was hearing him speak about his passion for governance and integrity in leadership. Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago is an exemplary ambassador of the UBA spirit and of our core values: “HEIR” Humility, Empathy, Integrity & Resilience.

“At @UBAGROUP the customer comes first and we uphold their trust in us. It was fulfilling to meet and reward him for his conduct. The @UBAGroup management is proud to have this caliber of staff at all levels. Congratulations to Mohammed and keep up the good work,” Elumelu wrote.
