This much he said when the management of the company, led by the outgoing Group Managing Director, Mr Sule Bichi paid the management team of the CRD courtesy visit on Wednesday.
Umeje stated that if the CRD were to give awards to those in the industry, he will give Red Star Plc an award as the best in compliance to regulatory rules among many others. He said this is a reflection of the leadership style brought to bare on the company by the outgoing Group Managing Director.
