NSE set to honour Alile, pioneer director general
NIGE RIAN STOCK EX CHANGE (NSE) according to a credible source is set to honour its pioneer Director General, Hayford Alile (Apostle) whose exit was announced on October 1, 2018. The late Alile helmed the affairs at the Lagos bourse from 1976 to 2000.
It was gathered that on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, members of the Alile family that will possibly include his children and widow will have the honour of closing the trading for the day.
The event, our source further revealed will commence at 1.30p.m. with a reception of the family and will continue on the trading floor at about 2.00 p.m.
The ceremony is expected to bring together, past and present presidents of NSE, doyens of stockbrokers and stakeholders who have had the privilege of knowing the late Alile more intimately. A bespoke lunch is planned for the guests attending to round off the event at the Exchange.
It will appear that the closing gong event by NSE is a fitting prelude to the farewell tribute and service of songs event that will be held at Harbour Point, Victoria Island, Lagos at 6:00pm on same November 7, 2018.
This event will be an expanded opportunity for a wider audience from corporate Nigeria to pay their last respect to a man highly reputed for his integrity in the boardroom and prodigious financial market leadership.
