    The protests at the NSE was completely ridiculous. The capital markets of any country should not be affected because of political sentiments. when will Nigeria learn?

    Wow really shocking. I didn’t know Oscar worked at Amex before coming to NSE, my respect for him has just catapulted. Good episode, not an entrepreneur but certainly worth listening to, thanks Forbes Africa.

    Only in Nigeria can thugs halt activities on the forex markets. Alwyas finding new innovative ways of sending our country backwards.

    love this program, I feel like it brings so many different conversations to life- firstly I’m amazed that the priorities of the capital markets can be stopped because of election protests and absolutely nothing can be done. secondly, how profitable is the Nigerian capital market anyway? I’m yet to see any young trader who can boast of making a successful living from trading shares. so what mr onyema, how can we improve this?
