The bank’s Managing Director, Mr Hamid Joda, made this known in a statement recently. The Nigerian Apex bank has given TAJBank Limited, the top non-interest bank in Nigeria, permission to conduct nationwide banking operations.

The license is coming on the heels of several awards bagged by the bank in the past two years of operations in recognition of its outstanding banking services, including three International Standards Organisation (ISO) certifications for its commitment to customer safety assurance, service excellence and business operations resilience prioritization. According to Joda, it is another feat achieved by the bank to leverage our cutting-edge and impressive products and service delivery scorecards.
