The great Dr. Sarah Adenike Morocco-Clarke who recorded a giant stride in the Nigerian banking sector has passed away. Dr. Sarah Adenike Morocco-Clarke, Nigeria's first female banker, has died at the age of 80.
 
Born on the 13th of May 1938, the Morocco-Clarke matriarch passed away peacefully on Sunday, 16 September 2018, after a short illness.
 
Sarah Morocco-Clarke, an alumnus of Queen's College Lagos, Nigeria, started her career with First Bank (the Bank of British West Africa, and subsequently Standard Bank) as a pioneer female employee, rose through the ranks at First Bank Nigeria and was made the Services Manager and Secretary to the South Administration, wherein she had a mandate that covered the services of all the First Bank branches in Southern Nigeria.
 
While she worked in the banking industry, Sarah Morocco-Clarke was the manager of numerous First Bank branches in Lagos and was subsequently made a Regional Manager in charge of Bendel, Ogun and Oyo states.
 
She was also an Area Manager in the Western part of Nigeria. Popularly known as the 'Iron Lady' , a moniker seemingly taken from references to the then British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Morocco-Clarke was given this nickname because of her stern mien and no-nonsense attitude professionally.
 
The Morocco-Clarke matriarch leaves behind six successful children, thirteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
