The Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group, (NGX Group) Plc, Otunba Abimbola Ogunbanjo, spoke at the event, lauding Onyema's impact on the growth of The Exchange as his "strategic mindset and mastery of Exchange business was what NSE dearly needed to rise to its next level of growth."

On his part, the GCEO, NGX Group Plc, Mr. Oscar N. Onyema, OON noted thus, “I arrived at The Nigerian Stock Exchange when the stock market was in the doldrums, investors’ confidence low, mono-product and the bourse under regulatory administration. With tunnel vision collaboration with stakeholders in the financial system and perseverance, we have been able to surmount almost all of the challenges. I am delighted to have worked with the astute members of the National Council, visionary leaders in the Executive Committee, and an expert crop of staff at The Exchange to have delivered excellent results. We have come a long way from where we used to be and I am excited about the opportunities demutualisation has opened for us in the coming years. I must reiterate my commitment to ensuring that the NGX Group Plc and its subsidiaries deliver on the mandate to become Africa's leading capital market infrastructure provider. I look forward to deepening partnerships with existing stakeholders and exploring new collaborations locally and globally to bring this to bear.”
