Mallam Muhammed Hayatudeen is remembered more as the first Nigerian bank managing director to turn around a sick and dying financial institution.
He used his wealth of experience in 1992 to transform the hitherto dormant Federal Savings Bank, FSB into a thriving commercial bank.
His effort led to the establishment of the now defunct FSB International Bank. Acclaimed as one of the moving spirits behind the Nigerian Economic Summit that has set the agenda for restructuring the Nigerian economy and putting it on a firm foundation, the Nigerian Economic Summit served as a precursor of the Vision 2010 where Hayatudeen also played a prominent role.
