Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh, will be honoured on Monday, 17 August when he will perform the significant ringing of the bell at the closing of business at the Nigeria Stock Exchange.
The NFF official website reports that Oliseh will attend the symbolic event at the Nigeria Stock Exchange house in Lagos in company with Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick, and vice-presidents Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko.
“The ringing of the bell at the closing of business at the Nigeria Stock Exchange floor is a very significant event. It means that Corporate Nigeria is warming up to Nigeria football as a result of extensive consultations that we have been making over the past months,” Pinnick said on Wednesday.
It is the first time in history that the Nigeria Stock Exchange would offer a Nigeria football figure such a gesture, and Pinnick says it is the beginning of what would turn out to be a wonderful relationship between Corporate Nigeria and Nigeria football.
“We are looking at taking this to a level where even clubs in the Nigeria League will be quoted on the Nigeria Stock Exchange. It is a gradual process but we will get there.”
