The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), said that it has separated its Legal Department from the Council Secretariat  in a bid to ensure greater efficiency and innovation?.
It therefore announced the appointment of Mrs. Mojisola Ruth Adeola, a lawyer, chartered secretary, as Council Secretary and Head of the Council Secretariat.
Adeola, until most recently, Company Secretary/Legal Adviser to Acorn Petroleum Plc?, replaces Ms. Tinuade Awe who served as Council Secretary from January 2011, who remains  General Counsel and Head of the NSE’s Legal and Regulation Division.
In this role, according to a statement by the bourse, Ms. Awe would “focus on driving greater efficiency in The Exchange’s regulatory functions within the zero tolerance rubric, improving its relationship with other regulators, and preparing The Exchange for demutualisation?.”
Meanwhile, Adeola holds an LLB degree from the University of Lagos and qualified to practice as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in 2005.
The statement also noted that Mrs. Irene Robinson-Ayanwale who previously headed both the Legal Department and the Council Secretariat, retains her role as Head of the Legal Department where she would focus on protecting The Exchange from legal liability and providing first class legal support for The Exchange’s ongoing initiatives.  
Commenting on this development, Oscar Onyema, the NSE’s Chief Executive said: “The Executive Management and Council note the significant contributions of Mrs. Irene Robinson-Ayanwale who combined the two roles reporting to Ms. Awe prior to the appointment of Mrs Mojisola Ruth Adeola. I must also thank Ms. Tinuade Awe, who assumed the role of Council Secretary at a challenging time for The Exchange during the Interim Administration and was instrumental in building the governance structure currently at The Exchange.  It gives me great pleasure to welcome Mrs Adeola to The Exchange and I wish her every success in her new role.” 
The Council Secretariat which is currently under the Legal and Regulation Division will now be one of a number of departments integrated into the Office of the CEO, the statement added.
