We extend a warm welcome to our brother, Mr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, to The Gambia.
Governor Sanusi who is expected to arrive in the country later today will have the opportunity to sensitise stakeholders on the recent reforms in the banking industry.
This visit will in no small measure boost the existing cordial relations between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and The Gambia.
Considering the number of Nigerian banks operating in the country and the global financial crisis, one can draw a conclusion that Governor Sanusi's visit is indeed timely and relevant.
Sanusi's combined career in banking, coupled with his strong intellectual background is worth admiration.
His critical role in moving the Nigerian economy speaks volume of his greatness.
Governor Sanusi's wealth of experience in West African oil rich nations' financial industry speaks for itself.
We encourage all those meeting him to tap his insatiable wealth of knowledge.
We hope that he will use his visit to shed light on the Nigerian's current bank hitches that continued to dominate international news headlines.
The Gambia and Nigeria shares a lot in common and we are not the least enthralled with the visit of this high profile personality from Nigeria.
We wholeheartedly welcome you to the Smiling Coast of Africa.
