Similarly, the company has appointed a chief financial officer (CFO) who comes with significant experience in finance and a new head of Risk Management and Compliance.

While Eje will no longer run the company’s day-to-day operations, he is said to learn under Sowho for now.

Eje also had this to say.

“I sincerely express my apologies to all Thrive Agric subscribers, partners, and investors for the lapses in communication in the past months. We are committing to maintaining effective communication on the state of things with Thrive Agric to all stakeholders in order to regain confidence as we ensure all subscribers get paid fully.

This delay in payouts is not what we intended in our mission to create a food-secure Nigeria. We hope for your continued patience as we continue to engage with you in the next few days as we roll out the changes to get us back on track.”
