Alex-Ibru commends NSE on growth
Publisher of The Guardian Newspapers, Lady Maiden Alex-Ibru, has commended the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on the growth recorded so far in its wealth creation process.
She said the exchange should continue to meet the needs of investors with high level of competitiveness as espoused in its corporate overview as “an open, professional and vibrant exchange, connecting Nigeria, Africa and the world.”
Alex-Ibru, who stated on Friday at the closing gong ceremony to mark the company’s 35th anniversary at the Exchange, affirmed that The Guardian Newspapers was proud to be associated with the 58-year old exchange, which services the largest economy in Africa and is currently championing the development of the continent’s financial markets, is a trailblazer in its own right.
Executive Director, The Guardian, Toke Alex-Ibru, Chairman, Editorial Board, Professor Wale Omole, Chief Operating Officer/Director, Dr Alexander A. Thomopulos, Chief Executive Officer, Ibru Organisation, Oskar Ibru and other management team attended the event.
“Besides, we are delighted to be here because the NSE adopts the highest level of international standards in its operations that we report daily. We are also aware that the NSE belongs to a number of international and regional organisations, which promote the development and integration of global best practices across their platforms,” she said.
Alex-Ibru, who did not rule out the possibility of listing the newspaper on the exchange in the near future, added that she was impressed too by the simplicity of your corporate governance profile, which we have also studied.
“You have a simple Executive Committee of three members, supported by National Council and National Committee Members who are professionals in the capital market, financial institutions and firms.
