Furthermore, with her impressive academic credentials, solid experience acquired over three decades in her industry, and her contributions to nation-building which earned her the conferment of the national honour of the Officer of the Order of the Niger by the Federal Government, the governor is confident Dr. Umeoji will make a resounding success of her new role.  

As an indigene of Anambra State, Governor Soludo noted that Dr Adaora Umeoji joins the esteemed ranks of amazons and trailblazing women like Dr. Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, OON, the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Bank Plc, also a first female CEO and a daughter of the state. The Governor further highlighted the significance of their appointments as a testament of women in leadership positions and urged other organizations to follow the Banks' example 

Governor Soludo, therefore, wishes Dr. Adaora Umeoji a successful tenure in office as she steers Zenith Bank to greater heights of success and prosperity. 

Dr Umeoji will assume her new role from June 1, 2024, replacing Ebenezer Onyeagwu whose five years tenure will end on May 31, 2024

Signed,
