The Federal Government has inaugurated the Board of the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC.

The investiture which was conducted by the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Finance, Alhaji. Mahmoud Isa-Dutse, in Abuja will have Mr. Olufemi Lijadu as Chairman of the Board of the Commission.

The constitution of the Board is coming four years after President Muhammadu Buhari dismissed Mr. Peter Obi as Chairman of the Commission after his appointment by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Lijadu, who hails from Ogun state, and a leading commercial lawyer with over thirty years’ experience, was also Executive Director of one of Nigeria’s top four banking institution, United Bank of Africa Plc.

Part-time members of the Board are: Mr. Olufemi Dominic Lijadu (Chairman), Mr. Okokon Ekanem Udo (Representative of the Federal Ministry of Finance), Mrs. Angela Adewumi Sere-Ejembi (Representative of the Central Bank of Nigeria), Mrs. Faruk Ladi Rekiya (part time Commissioner), Mr. Lamido Abubakar Yuguda (part time Commissioner).

Full-time members are: Ms. Mary Joseph Uduk – Acting Director-General, Mr Isyaku Bala Tilde – Ag. Executive Commissioner (Operations), Mr. Reginald Karawusa – Ag. Executive Commissioner (Legal and Enforcement), Mr. Henry Adekunle Rowlands – Ag. Executive Commissioner (Corporate Services).

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari dissolved the previous board of the SEC on July 16, 2015, and set up an eight-man panel headed by a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal, two months later, to reconstitute it.

The inauguration of the Board comes with much excitements as market operators and stakeholders in the sector have been calling for the reconstitution of the board to strengthen SEC’s operations.
