Prior to his appointment to the new role, Mr Bashir chaired the bank’s Board Investment Committee, and has been a member of Jaiz Bank’s board of directors since 2012.
He is currently the chairman of Althani Group of Companies, and Cobalt International Services, which he has chaired for nearly two decades.

“He obtained a BBA in Business Management in 1998 from Tafawa Balewa University, Abuja campus and a National Diploma in Irrigation Engineering from Kaduna State Polytechnic 1987,” the document said.
He is a recipient of an honorary doctorate from Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State.
