Bowring and Co. Nigeria Ltd.; Chief Theophilus Adebayo Doherty; Sir. Odumegwu Ojukwu; Mr. Akintola Williams and Alhaji Shehu Bukar, as well as John Holt Ltd and Investment Company of Nig. Ltd. (ICON).
As he stated, “We are gratified to have witnessed the vision of these seven individuals and organizations, who, in a true Nigerian spirit, prepared the ground for the start of the Exchange. I am proud of all that we have achieved over the last six decades”.
In the past, we only listed 19 securities for trading, but today we list over 300 securities worth about N35 trillion.”
In addition, he emphasized the Group’s efforts to build on its legacy. As a result of demutualisation, we have been able to transition from a profit-driven, shareholder-owned company to a globally competitive organization that is owned by shareholders.
