    Recall Some weeks ago I made a complaint against Cardinal Stone Registrars ltd on this platform for not getting required attention concerning some of my equities with the company .
    However , and a couples of days later I happened to chat with a lady by name Oluwadamilola . I must confess that the lady disarmed with her courtesy , respect , and approach .
    Not only that she requested for a few minutes , went into my files and both strikes the necessary goals .
    I must emphasized that the company has been doing excellently well on my equities with regards to Julius Berger and others except that defunct Inland bank , Skye , FCMB , Legacy Fund , NAHCO which all have now been amicably resolved as all my outstanding e-dividends have been electronically remitted to my bank account .
    For the avoidance of any doubt , I did not know the lady who addressed these but I have found her to be highly dedicated to her duties , well mannered , educated , cultured and well behaved in all facets of attending to a client .
    I must input with huge sense of humility to thank every body . May God bless and enlarge your coasts , work , potters and pauses .
    I also wish to add and loudly submit that in all my seminars , lectures etcetera wherever I am billed to deliver lectures on investment especially on Stock Exchange/ Market , I shall be making mention of your organization to high havens in praise and patronage to my audience and participants .
    Praying God to bring back good successes on the Exchange .
    I am yours sincerely
    Ola Ilesanmi .
