Read The Story Behind
Our Success

Just like yesterday, ASSBIFI is now forty years in the struggle to unionize, emancipate and seek a common destiny for the senior workers in the country’s finance sector.

Association of Senior Staff of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions (ASSBIFI) emanated from the government’s structural reforms of trade unions in the country in 1978.  It commenced operations from the office of the protem National President, late Comrade Ismail A. Adeniran, s staff of United Bank for Africa Plc, Breadfruit Street Branch in Lagos before moving to its registered office at Alagomeji, Yaba, Lagos.

Apart from Comrade Adeniran, other founding fathers that struggled for the operating license include:

  • Comrade J.O. Ketemi
  • Comrade S.O. Sowemimocomrade O. C. Alozie
  • Comrade Jarvis Erhomosele
  • Comrade C. J. Omo-jiade

The pioneering Units were United Bank for Africa, Prestige Assurance, Afribank Nigeria Plc, Phoenix Assurance Plc, Arab Bank, Great Nigeria Insurance Plc, and the Cooperative Bank.

From inception to date, there have been fourteen (14) Central Working Committees while Comrade Oyinkan Olasanoye is the 9th National President.
