The NESG has been in the vanguard of Nigeria’s campaign to create an enabling environment conducive to good governance, responsible private investment and sustainable economic growth. It has championed the adoption of ethical business practices and continues to encourage ongoing dialogue between public and private
sector leaders.

In July of 2018, the Central Bank of Nigeria website reported that Nigeria was not on track to meet the 2020 targets set out in the National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS) of 2012. The impediments to achieving this target have been ascribed to economic constraints, insecurity issues in the northern part of Nigeria, obsolete strategies, among others.

As a financial inclusion advocate and radio anchor, Ms. Balde organized, planned and curated a one of a kind financial inclusion session with 120 key stakeholders present from around Nigeria and beyond at the 24th annual Nigerian Economic Summit. The keynote speaker was his excellency former Central Bank of Nigeria deputy Governor Dr. Obadiah Mailafia.
