The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has renewed the contract of its Chief Executive Officer, Mr Oscar Onyema, for another five-year term.
This is contained in a statement issued by the exchange, which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
NAN reports that Onyema resumed office as the CEO of the Exchange in April 2011, while his initial five-year employment contract would expire on March 31, 2016.
The statement quoted Mr Aigboje Aig-Imokhuede, NSE President, as noting that Onyema’s tenure as NSE’s CEO was marked by outstanding achievements.
Aig-Imokhuede expressed confidence that Onyema would continue to implement the exchange business strategies to enhance growth and development.
“The leadership qualities that he has demonstrated in his first term as CEO, in the face of such intense and challenging operating environment, have been exemplary.
“The Council believes that his vision and passion will ensure that the Exchange remained a force to be reckoned with in Africa and beyond,’’ he stated.
On his contract renewal, the statement quoted Onyema as saying “I am honoured to remain with the NSE and to continue to lead our dedicated staff as we strive to achieve the Exchange’s vision.
“I am grateful to the Council for the opportunity to continue such an important work.
“While there is still much to be accomplished, the support shown by the capital market community has been inspirational, and I look forward to working with the entire eco-system, to meet our objectives,” Onyema added. (NAN)
