The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has renewed the contract of Oscar Onyema (pictured), its CEO, for a further five years. Onyema's initial five-year contract was due to expire on 31 March 2016, as he first took up office with the exchange in April 2011.

According to Aigboje Aig-Imokhuede, NSE President, Onyema's tenure as CEO has been marked by outstanding achievements. The President further expressed confidence that Onyema would continue to implement business strategies that enhance growth and development.

Aig-Imokhuede said:

"The leadership qualities that he [Onyema] has demonstrated in his first term as CEO, in the face of such an intense and challenging operating environment, have been exemplary. The Council believes that his vision and passion will ensure that the Exchange remained a force to be reckoned with in Africa and beyond."

Onyema said:

"I am honoured to remain with the NSE and to continue to lead our dedicated staff as we strive to achieve the Exchange's vision. I am grateful to the Council for the opportunity to continue such an important work. While there is still much to be accomplished, the support shown by the capital market community has been inspirational, and I look forward to working with the entire eco-system to meet our objectives."
