    Should be a good episode, the Nigerian stock market has certainly had some tough times in recent years.

    The capital markets in this country is quite frankly a joke. There is no room for young traders to make any money and the level of favouritism to certain so called big companies makes it impossible to discern how well the stocks are actually performing. I hope Peace asks him how he intends to fix this problem…hmmm

    Is this man actually an entrepreneur or a 9 to 5 worker Forbes? From what I know about him, he worked with Amex for a number of years before relocating to Africa and although his accomplishments in the capital markets are impressive, I cannot see what entrepreneurial qualities he possesses.

    I worked as an analyst at the Nigerian Stock exchange for a number of years so believe me when i say that there are a lot of Worst days we see that the general public is not aware of. Oscar has been a remarkable leader in a capital market which was previously unregulated with a lot of corrupt practices. today, the NSE is recognised as a reputable market by the global communities. I love this program and the focus of looking at challenges businesses face. I think we can all learn a lot of from the program. great job peace and Forbes Africa.

    @Forbes Africa how can we get my CEO on the show? I believe he would be a great guest. We are a multi million dollar indigenous oil company in Nigeria with a presence in 10 African countries.
