He said only 21 of the affected brokers are members of the broking fraternity.
He said the NCRIB had made frantic efforts to ensure that the affected brokers were given soft landing as against the withdrawing of their licences.
He appealed to NAICOM to ensure sustenance of effective communication channels with the NCRIB in such a way that its members are notified in good times on any aspect of compliance in which they are on the path of erring, stressing that this could even be done through the Council in the spirit of the existing cordial relationship.
“Suffice it to say that the NCRIB is not happy that any operator in the market will continue to flout regulatory requirements as enshrined in the law. However, the Council on my assumption of office, made a representation to NAICOM on this and sundry issues for which, as usual, we got assurance of support from the Commission.’’
He continued: “While we are still looking at opportunity to assist those with minor infractions by interceding for them in NAICOM, we have equally made this clear to our members that the regulatory environment of today requires more discipline than hitherto and that compliance issues must no longer be treated with levity.’’
He reiterated his pledge to take the broking profession to lofty heights, adding that he will sustain his promise of running an open door policy
