Zenith Bank Plc has been named ”Best Commercial Bank in Nigeria” at the World Finance Banking Awards 2021, as published in the July edition of the World Finance Magazine.
The Group Managing Director/Chief Executive of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr Ebenezer Onyeagwu announced the award in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, in Lagos.

“This award comes in the wake of several awards and recognitions received by the bank in recent times for its track record of excellent performance and commitment to global best practices.
