Speaking about the #FlexxYourCreativity contest, Divisional Head of Retail Banking, Mr. Olu Akanmu highlighted that the contest is designed to empower young Nigerians to become business owners. According to him “FCMB’s Flexx is more than just an account. It is a lifestyle platform that offers Fun, Future and Banking. The reality is that more young people need encouragement to develop entrepreneurial skills which will allow them not only be financially independent, but also grow the economy by being employers of labour. We are optimistic that the #FlexxYourCreativity contest will encourage more people who have small businesses and need support to grow them.”
