Adesina said President Muhammadu Buhari also approved the reconstitution of the corporation’s management team.
Mr. Buhari also appointed Kola Ayeye, Eberechukwu Uneze and Aminu Ismail as the new executive directors of the corporation.
They will form the executive management team of the body.
Until his appointment, Mr. Kuru was the Group Managing Director of Enterprise Bank Limited.
