The elevation of Waheed Olagunju, the erstwhile Executive Director, Small and Medium Enterprises of Nigeria’s Bank of Industry (BOI) to the position of Acting Managing Direction/Chief Executive Officer in the aftermath of the sacking of several heads of federal government parastatals and agencies that saw the exit of Rasheed Adejare Olaoluwa has been hailed by many.

In a banking career that spans over two decades, Olagunju has consistently demonstrated an uncommon capacity and capability in successfully taking on higher responsibilities assigned to him.

Olagunju’s versatility is exhibited in the various positions he has occupied since joining Nigerian Industrial Development Bank (NIDB).

Before embarking on his banking career, Olagunju had a distinguished broadcast career at the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) between July 1981 and July 1990.

A highly resourceful professional, he rose to the position of Controller of News and Head of the Economic Desk before he joined the NIDB in August 1990.

The positive impact witnessed by his previous stint as Acting MD/CEO of BOI remained a point of reference in the bank, despite the brief time he had.

Happily married with children, Olagunju holds Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Lagos, as well as a professional certificate in Investment Appraisal from the Queens University, Canada.
