About Union Bank of Nigeria
Union Bank of Nigeria Plc is a commercial bank in Nigeria. It has been operating in Nigeria since 1917.
The bank’s history can be traced to 1836 when London bankers and British merchants obtained a royal charter from William IV to conduct banking business in the Caribbean. These group of investors then formed Colonial Bank. Following an act of parliament empowering the bank to open more branches beyond the Caribbean, Colonial bank began operations in Nigeria in 1917. Operations started with banking centers in Lagos, Jos and Port-Harcourt. Further centers were opened in financially important areas, in 1918, the bank opened additional centers at Ebute-Metta, Onitsha, Ibadan, Kano and Zaria and then added another branch at Burutu in 1921. During this time, Colonial’s banking activities also covered other cities in British West Africa including Accra and Freetown. In 1925, Barclays Bank acquired Colonial Bank, changing the bank’s name to Barclays Bank (Dominion, Colonial and Overseas) and later Barclays Bank (DCO). During the period between 1925 and 1950, commercial expansion was hampered by the Great Depression and World War II, though the bank continued to operate steadily opening a few branches but also closing some branches. In the 1950s, the bank increased operations in Nigeria and by the beginning of 1960 it had a total of 41 branches. You can read more here.
