Through detailed media data gathering, analysis, and audit of salient valid PR metrics of 27 Commercial Banks, top 10 leading Insurance companies, and top 4 Telecommunications Providers. The reports ranked the top CEOs (Commercial Banks, Telecommunication, and Insurance) prominent in the Online and Print media.

Closely behind were Oliver Alawuba of United Bank for Africa (UBA) with 22% and Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe of Fidelity Bank capturing 22% of media coverage, demonstrating significant visibility and engagement within the industry. Moruf Oseni of Wema Bank came in next with 18% and Wole Adeniyi of Stanbic IBTC Bank rounded out the chart with 16%, showing a notable but comparatively lower media presence. This distribution of media coverage highlights the competitive landscape and varying levels of media engagement among top banking executives.
