This was said by Mr. Lamido Yuguda, director general of the Securities and Exchange Commission, at the inaugural Gombe State Investment Summit, which was held in the state capital on Wednesday and had as its theme “Industrialization: The Pathway to Innovation, Transformation, and Development of Gombe.”

The SEC DG disclosed that the capital market can play an enormous role in the growth of businesses as they could approach the market for primary offers as well as the secondary market, which smaller companies can also access due to the less stringent disclosure requirements.  


What The Regulator Is Saying 

  • The capital market is available to provide funding to businesses. With crowdfunding, a small business can raise money based on certain principles as the SEC has approved this to happen for a certain number of investors and a certain amount at a time.

  • “There are also huge opportunities available for businesses, especially agro-allied businesses. They can use the commodities market to access high-caliber customers that require Agric produce in large quantities. We have licensed six commodities exchanges in Nigeria and they are very active”

  • He, therefore, expressed the commitment of the commission to working with the state government and other stakeholders to create the necessary awareness.
