He added that he had been the board chairman for 10 years and wanted to announce his successor at the beginning of the AGM, to give him (Oyebode) the opportunity to hear the concerns and expectations of the shareholders.

“It has been a privilege for me to serve in this capacity and the company and I introduce my successor, Mr Gbenga Oyebode.

“The reason I introduced him early is to enable him to hear all the complaints and resolve them.
