SystemSpecs, a financial technology company, has appointed Dr. Ernest Ndukwe as its new Chairman.
Ndukwe, Chairman of MTN and former executive vice-chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, takes over from Nigeria’s former Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade who retired after 15 years of leading the company.
The development rides on the back of its 30th anniversary which saw the company expand its operations through the establishment of two subsidiaries – SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited (STSL) and Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL).
John Obaro, Group Managing Director, SystemSpecs said the development is in line with the organisation’s vision of deepening its capacity to meet the technology needs of a broader market.
Henceforth, the firm will now operate as three distinct entities: a holding company, SystemSpecs Holdings Limited and two subsidiaries – Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL) which focuses on payment and affiliated services and SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited (STSL) which focuses on a wide array of technology solutions and services.
Dr. Ernest Ndukwe is a high flyer in Nigeria’s corporate world particularly the communication sector and has continued to be relevant in the industry for years. This is the second high profile appointment he has accepted since he left office as the executive Vice-Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission.
