In 1925, Barclays Bank acquired the Colonial Bank, which resulted in the change of the bank's name to Barclays Bank (Dominion, Colonial and Overseas). By the enactment of the 1972 and 1977 Nigeria Enterprises Promotion Acts, Barclays Bank International disposed its shareholding to Nigerians in 1979. To reflect the new ownership structure and in compliance with the Companies and Allied Matters Act of 1990, it assumed the name Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. Union Bank of Nigeria is one of the largest and most capitalized banks in Nigeria. It has big and diversified customer base which is served across its network of 405 branches spread out across the country.
