The Zonal Director, SEC, Mr Edward Okolo, explained that the essence of the programme was to enlighten the people of Ondo State on e-dividend processes and the opportunities in the capital market.

According to him, the e-dividend will afford people of the state the opportunity to bring their moribund companies into the market and revive it, which will then provide employment for the teeming population of unemployed youths in the state.

He noted that the programme would not only afford participants the opportunity to be well informed about investment in shares and stocks but would also help individuals to do the needful whenever opportunity opened for investment.
