The Board, management, and staff of the Nigerian Exchange Group and its subsidiaries, led by Alhaji (Dr) Umaru Kwairanga, Group Chairman, NGX Group, on Tuesday, paid a condolence visit to the family of late Chief Christopher Oladipo Ogunbanjo.
The delegation which also included former board members across the group and past presidents of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), including Chief Oba Otudeko and Alhaji Aliko Dangote, expressed the group’s deepest condolences.
Kwairanga noted that “Chief Christopher Oladipo Ogunbanjo was not just a father but a patriarch, an elder statesman, philanthropist, legal luminary and a corporate titan.
“At NGX Group, we remember him for his fatherly role on the Council of the NSE and his contribution to the growth of many companies as an investor, encouraging them to list on the Exchange. He championed many initiatives in corporate law which positively impacted many companies,” he said.
Continuing, Kwairanga said although Chief Ogunbanjo’s “absence leaves a void that will be felt by the family, professional colleagues, and the communities that benefited from his benevolence, it is comforting to know that Chief Ogunbanjo’s legacy will endure and continue to inspire us for generations to come.”
Chief Christopher Ogunbanjo, whose firm handled the incorporation of the Nigerian Stock Exchange was celebrated as one of Nigeria’s most distinguished corporate lawyers.
