To expand its capital-base to meet the needs of its customers, and contribute to economic growth of the Nigeria, the bank made successful forays into the international market and raised about $3.8bn in the last 4 years.
This includes a $750mn syndicated medium-term loan in 2018 (fully paid); a €1bn syndicated loan in March 2020; a $1bn syndicated loan in December 2020; and in addition, a €750mn Senior Eurobond (the first by any African national DFI) in February 2022.

BOI’s performance is reflected in its favorable credit ratings from global ratings agencies. Recently, Fitch Ratings upgraded the bank’s National Long-Term Rating to ‘AAA(nga)’ from ‘AA+(nga);’ and affirmed the bank’s Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at ‘B’ with a Stable Outlook.
Mr. Pitan’s management style has endured the institutional ability of the corporate and banking services of BOI. As a graduate with a BSc (Hons) degree in Economics as a UAC scholar from the University of Ibadan in 1982 and as a Master’s degree holder in International Management (as a Rotary International Scholar from the American Graduate School of International Management, Thunderbird Campus, Glendale, Arizona) such successes are worthy and a confidence booster to all stakeholders.
