eTranzact International PLC has announced the appointment of Ernst &Young Nigeria, as its external auditor.
This disclosure signed by the company’s Secretary, Bernice Anya, was sent to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on October 6, 2020, as part of the resolutions of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the company held recently in Lagos, Nigeria.
This is in pursuant of Section 361 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act CAP C20, LFN2002.
