Flutterwave chairman, Tunde Lemo, acquires majority shares in Union Bank

Tunde Lemo, the chairman of Flutterwave, has acquired a majority stake in Union Bank after a number of large shareholders pulled out of the Nigerian lender.

Through his investment firm, Titan Trust Bank Limited, Lemo purchased 89.39 percent of Union Bank from Union Global Partners Ltd. (UGPL) and some other unnamed existing stakeholders.

Lemo, who was previously the Managing Director of Wema Bank between 2000 and 2003 before joining the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as a deputy governor, now has a significant stake in Union Bank.

“The Board of Titan Trust Bank and our key stakeholders are delighted as this transaction marks a key step for Titan Trust in its strategic growth journey and propels the institution to the next level in the Nigerian banking sector,” the investment banker said of the Union Bank acquisition.

“The transaction represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to combine Union Bank’s long-standing and leading banking franchise with TTB’s innovative model, which promises to enhance our combined valued customers’ product and service offerings.” In a statement obtained from NGX on Thursday, Lemo said.
