Mitchell Elegbe the CEO of the Interswitch group, Nigeria’s major e payments processor, yesterday had an exclusive tweet chat with Nairametrics.

He discussed a wide variety of issues from the company’s dominance in the e-payment sector, his relationship with Paystack and Flutterwave, new products, a possible listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, and the reason behind the company charging online merchants to connect to its platform.

As expected, Nairametrics asked if and when Interswitch might be listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. Here is how Mitchell responded.

Listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange is not off the table

The company is not ruling out a possible listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, whenever private equity firms Helios, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and TA associates decide to exit the firm.
