NSE set to hon­our Alile, pi­o­neer di­rec­tor general

Business a.m. - - FINANCE & INVESTMENT -

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.
