The outgoing President, Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, while speaking at the AGM, commended the council and management of the NSE for their cost containment efforts and their diligent approach to budgeting which saw total expenses decline by 12 percent year-on-year without affecting its high operating standards and service quality.

On his part, Chief Executive Officer of the NSE, Mr Oscar N. Onyema, said the exchange has delivered strong and broad-based results which strengthen our foundation for long-term prosperity, and will drive growth in the near-term.

During the AGM yesterday, the NSE presented its Financial Statements as at December 31, 2016 as well as reports of National Council and Auditors, which were presented to the members as part of the Ordinary Business of the day.
