In an interview with Arise TV on Wednesday, April 26, Elumelu stated, “I am pleased that Transcorp is becoming investors’ toast.”
“I appreciate Femi Otedola’s investment in Transcorp,” he continued. I’m pleased to see a vibrant local investing community. I like Femi’s local investment, and he deserves praise for it. Additionally, I appreciate his investment in Transcorp because the more investors there are and the more people who are interested in the business’ operations and financial results, the better it will be for our shareholders.
He said that until his leadership took over Transcorp roughly ten years ago, there wasn’t much interest in the stock of the company.
“Transcorp shareholders lost faith in the company when I tried to acquire it, so they couldn’t even locate their share certificates. Today, Transcorp has consistently paid dividends under our direction.
“Therefore, it is a confirmation when friends and the investing public come to invest in it. It lets you know that people have faith in your narrative, vision, administration, leadership, and expertise. I’ve shown you how to do it, and I want my friend to join us,” Elumelu remarked. He asserted that Transcorp had over 300,000 stockholders and that investments of 5%, 6%, or 20% in Trancorp add up to the same amount.
“What is important is that we have strong leadership, a strong board, and we continue to deliver on shareholders’ expectations or public expectation,” the executive said.
