Celebrating Women

Aishah Ahmad

I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Aishah Ahmad is currently the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, since her appointment on 6 October, 2017.

Aishah graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Abuja. Her Master of Business Administration, majoring in finance was obtained from the University of Lagos. She also holds a Master of Science degree in Finance and Management, awarded by the Cranfield School of Management in the United Kingdom. She is a Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) and a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).

Aishah started out in the private sector as a Group Accountant at Manstructs Group Nigeria Limited. She then worked at Z.O. Ososanya & Company. She transferred to First Interstate Bank (Nigeria) Plc as Executive Assistant, Treasury Group. Later, she worked as head of Retail Banking at Zenith Bank Plc and as Head of Private Banking at NAL Bank Plc, which today trades as Sterling Bank (Nigeria). She has also served as the Head of Business development at Zenith Capital Limited. She also served as the chairperson of the executive council of Women in Management Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ). Prior to her appointment, she was Head Consumer Banking & Investment at Diamond Bank. She was confirmed by the Nigerian Senate on 22 March, 2018. Aishah is a strong advocate for female and youth empowerment.

She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!

My name is Adenike Omotosho. I have an unflinching vigour to inspire other women. I do this by celebrating the lives of phenomenal women around the world.
I believe as a woman I am fearfully and wonderfully made by God. I want every woman out there to equally realise they are special and wonderful.
I also believe in sharing knowledge to impact my readers cut across gender. Therefore, men would benefit from the other sections on the blog and they could even get motivated by the profiles of the phenomenal women.
Once again, welcome to Nikkyosblog where you get inspiration to aspire. Please do subscribe and do leave a comment. Thank you!🤗
