“The first Capital Market Committee (CMC) meeting in 2018 has been scheduled to hold on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“The usual interface with members of the press will hold the following day being Friday, April 20, 2018, at the SEC Lagos Zonal Office at 3, Idejo Street, Victoria Island, Lagos,” the statement issued by SEC stated.
