FiberOne Broadband, Nigeria’s largest fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) Internet service provider, has appointed Ibrahim Dikko as its Board chairman.
The broadband company also appointed Tosin Osunkoya and Ayaba Modupe Ayo-Joseph as directors on its board.
The appointments are part of the company’s effort to strengthen its corporate governance structure, it said.
Lanre Ore, CEO, FiberOne, said the company was delighted to welcome Dikko, Tosin, and Ayo-Joseph at this “exciting time” of its growth.
“Their track records are remarkable, and they are clearly influential leaders in the telecom and business spaces. Their leadership will further strengthen our ability to achieve our long-term growth strategy and create additional value for our stakeholders,” Ore said.

“I’m really excited at FiberOne’s trajectory growth over the years, and I look forward to serving as its Board chairman as we enter a new phase of growth,” said Dikko.
A member of the Institute of Directors and a registered professional of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, Dikko studied Law at the University of Buckingham, UK, and the University of London.
Osunkoya is a global financial market expert with diverse knowledge and skills, and has in the last two decades dedicated his skills, knowledge, and experience to creating wealth for investors in global financial instruments.

She was appointed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as an executive director of (the defunct) Bank PHB and was part of the management team that ensured the bank remained a going concern, paving the way for its eventual bridging, recapitalization, and sale.
