The Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) Plc last week celebrated the duo of Bola Adeeko and Obinna Nwosu for dedicated services during their time at the company as the Interim Chief Executive Officer and Non-Executive Director respectively.
The send-off dinner, which took place in Lagos had in attendance key industry leaders from across various sectors of the economy.
Adeeko was seconded from the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) to CSCS on January 2, 2017 as the Interim Chief Executive Officer, while Nwosu joined the board in February 2014 as the Board Committee Chairman, Finance and Stakeholders’ Relationship Committee.
Speaking at the event, the Chairman, Board of Directors, CSCS, Oscar Oyema, said “we are proud of Bola’s numerous achievements during his short stint at CSCS, which also stands as a testimonial that our trust in his ability to deliver was not misplaced. Some of his notable achievements include the successful delivery and launch of Project Meridian, which was the replacement of the company’s legacy software with a brand new and nimbler Central Securities Depository (CSD) platform to enhance operational efficiencies and position it to support clearing and settlement of new asset classes.”
Onyema said during Nwosu’s time on the board, “we enjoyed his extensive knowledge and robust contributions towards the strategic direction and growth of CSCS. His unassuming nature and charming personality would be sorely missed. Thank you for your contributions and demonstration of strong leadership qualities particularly as the Board Committee Chairman of Finance and Stakeholkders’ Relationship Committee.”
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, CSCS, Haruna Jalo-Waziri, also showered encomium on the duo, saying he was always impressed by their depth of knowledge and understanding at any level of engagement.
According to Jalo-Waziri, “we appreciate the good work of Bola and Obinna in CSCS and it is our earnest prayer that you continue in your good work in future endeavours. We also hope we can call on you whenever the need arises and we look forward to continuing our close cooperation on a strong basis of trust. Posterity will also remember your contributions to CSCS.”
