Acting Director General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Mr Abdul Zubair, has reiterated his commitment to give adequate attention to welfare of his workers so as to ensure peace and harmony in the capital market regulatory agency.

Speaking while receiving executive members of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) led by its Secretary General Comrade Isaac Ojemhanke in Abuja on Monday, the regulatory chief said he will continue to work in harmony with the union.

He appealed to the body not to be confrontation with him as he was ready to listen to them and work together for stability.

Mr Zubair told the union that his team was ready to create a very conducive working environment for employees of the agency so as to ensure the regulator carry out its responsibilities without let or hindrance.

“We are pleased to partner with you and we are extending our hands of fellowship. We do not want confrontation; we are willing to partner with the union to fashion a way forward”

“We take the Union in high esteem, we are here to listen and be ready to work with you,” the Acting DG said.

In his remarks, Secretary General of ASCSN, Comrade Isaac Ojemhanke, promised to work in harmony with the SEC management.

He commended the Acting DG for his efforts so far, especially steps taken to boost morale and improve industrial harmony in the commission, adding that the parent body would always support the management in that direction.

“There must be survival of the organization; if the organization does not survive there would be no union.

“We are here to partner with the management, we will partner with the SEC once the management is ready to play by the rules,” Mr Ojemhanke said.
