Speaking at the event Mr. Aig-Imouhkuede (a member of the council of the NSE) praised the efforts of the NSE in facilitating a strategic ‘Investor Forum’ through its ‘Facts Behind the Figures’ presentation which gave the bank the platform to engage analysts, portfolio managers and the media in a discourse on its third (3rd) term tenure plan for the next four (4) years.
He also used the medium to announce his retirement by the end of 2013, and formally announce Mr. Herbert Wigwe, the DMD of the bank as the GMD Designate.
