The Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers (CIS) has inducted the Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) as a Fellow of the Institute.
Delivering his welcome address at the recent event, the President and Chairman of Council, CIS, Oluwole Adeosun, said the Fellowship of the Institute was the highest category of membership.
In his words, “For a member of the Institute to become a Fellow, the individual must, in addition to professional excellence, pass the moral and integrity tests with flying colours. This gentleman has done just that.”
In his acceptance speech, Popoola, thanked the Institute’s board of fellows and the full council members for the great honor, and pledged to continue to uphold the institute’s core values.
“I am extremely delighted because I am emotionally connected to this market and I am grateful for the support received from CIS since I became the CEO of NGX. At NGX, we strive to always incorporate CIS in our strategy as the Institute ranks high among our critical stakeholders,” he said.
The NGX CEO added that he is looking forward to working with CIS to engage the incoming government to drive policies that will reposition the capital market for growth.
