· Why bankers prefer to be an ordinary Branch Manager than a Deputy Managing Director

Life is a drag to many deputy bank chiefs, in Nigeria. They are the negligible indices in the scheme of things. The quiet characters whose industry and worth are forever smothered in the raucous din of over-celebrated and publicity-hungry superiors.

Thus the title: Deputy Managing Director (DMD), rankles many deputy bank chiefs, like rusty handcuffs on the wrists of severely misunderstood and underappreciated patriots. Like most deputy governors in Nigeria, Deputy Managing Directors of banks are not known. They are mere figure heads. People don’t reckon with them. Thus they are always quiet.

Their superiors always take the shine off them. It’s really sad. No wonder some people would say it’s better to be a branch manager than to be the DMD of a bank. Have you heard about the DMD of Skye Bank, FCMB, GTBank, Wema Bank, First Bank, Diamond bank before? Certainly not! This is because they are kept as stooges or Personal Assistants to the Managing Director in every bank.
