The Bank of Kigali has appointed a former Paystack executive as its Chief Digital Officer. Obinna Ukwuani, a Nigerian tech veteran, will lead the bank’s Digital Factory Division for product innovation and development in Digital Banking, a role he has been working on since June.

Mr Ukwuani grew up in Washington DC, graduating with honours in High School and going on to earn a degree in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He would later return to Nigeria, where he established the Exposure Robotics Academy in 2011, which is a major programme for science students in Lagos, Nigeria. There he led a team that coached 113 students in seventeen states in under three years. Some of the students would go on to earn admission to universities in the United States.

Mr Ukwuani has worked in software, agriculture processing and education. He launched the NESA by Makers programme in 2017, a software development skills acquisition scheme for Nigerians in 2017, enabling Nigerian developers gain global skills in web development in 3 months. In Rwanda, he launched the Makers Robotics Academy in 2018, the first robotics boot camp in the East African nation.
