SEC seeks financial inclusion for Nigerians

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yesterday said it hopes to reach 80 per cent of the population by 2020 in its financial inclusion initiative.

The organisation said there is need for Nigerians in rural areas to be effectively sensitised on the benefits of investing in the capital market.  Its Acting Director-General, Ms. Mary Uduk, said this at a sensitisation campaign in Kwali Area Council, Abuja.

Represented by the Acting Head of Department, Market Development Department at the commission, Mr. Frank Okafor, Ms. Uduk said the financial inclusion enlightenment campaign was to ensure that various products were made available to the excluded.

She said: “Our target is to have 80 per cent citizens to be financially included by the year 2020 and having recorded huge success in Bwari, Kuje Area Councils and University of Abuja, it has become pertinent that we extend the programme to other communities hence our presence here today.
