Based on the notice sent to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) by Japaul Oil and Maritime Services Plc and Resort Savings and Loans Plc concerning investments from Milost Global Inc of New York USA, some concerned market operators has called on the two issuers to come and brief the market community about the transactions.
The concerns of market operators is to forestall any action that will put investors and the market in a regrettable position. They noted that based on the way Japaul share price started to rise as a result of Milost Global injection of $350 million into the company, similar thing may be experienced in the share of Resort Savings and Loans Plc. They urged the Securities and Exchange Commission and Nigerian Stock Exchange to take a critical look at the transactions in the interest of the market and the economy at large.
