Come Nov 22nd, President Muhammadu Buhari will unveil the National Institute of Credit Administration (Establishment) Act No. 1018 of 2022 in Lagos.
He had earlier given assent to this on August 16 in line with his administration’s policy of encouraging and promoting economic growth and diversity.
The Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of National Institute of Credit Administration (NICA), Prof. Chris Onalo, said in a statement: “As no economy grows without use of credit, the assent by Mr. President to the NICA Bill was an unprecedented foundation laid for transition of Nigerian economy from cash to credit-based, a system, which will serve as a catalyst for both economic growth and social transformation.

The governing council will use the occasion of Mr. President’s visit to Lagos to unveil NICA (Establishment) Act to confer its prestigious fellowship award on eminent Nigerians that have distinguished themselves in stimulating the credit economy agenda in the country.”
