Did you know that as of April 2022, the financial inclusion rate in Nigeria was 64%?

This means 34% of adult Nigerians have no access to financial services like payments, savings, credit, and insurance.

The CBN hopes to get this number up to 95% by 2024. But to achieve this, everyone has to be involved.

At The Fintech Summit 2022 on November 26, Professor Olayinka David-West, Associate Dean at the Lagos Business School, will share expert insight on why ‘financial inclusion is everybody’s problem.’


Olayinka David-West is a Professor of Information Systems with almost three decades of experience in the IT and financial services industry and is a passionate advocate for digital transformation and inclusive finance.

Her research and practice engagements involve policy and strategic management interventions toward digitally transformed businesses and society.
