The Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC, has approved the appointments of the chief executives officers of the demutalised exchange and their operating subsidiaries.

Abimbola Ogunbanjo, Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group) Board of Directors, said this on Thursday in Lagos.

Mr Ogunbanjo said that SEC had approved the appointment of Mr Oscar Onyema, as the Group Chief Executive Officer, NGX Group; Temi Popoola, the Chief Executive Officer, Nigerian Exchange Ltd., and Tinuade Awe, the Chief Executive Officer, NGX Regulation Ltd.

Commenting on the appointments, Ogunbanjo said that the confirmation of these appointments would help to build a leading and resilient African Exchange Group.

“The confirmation of these appointments are an important step in the process of building a leading and resilient African Exchange Group following the completion of our demutualisation programme.
