The interim management will be headed by Mutiu Olaniyi Adio Sunmonu who till date is an Independent Non-Executive Director of Unilever Nigeria Plc, and the Chairman of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc.
Following findings from their two year investigation of petitions against the company, SEC had barred the Group Chief Executive Officer of Oando Plc, Wale Tinubu, and his deputy, Omamofe Boyo, from being directors of public companies for a period of five years.
All affected board members were also asked to resign.
The SEC directed the payment of monetary penalties by the company and affected individuals and directors, and refund of improperly disbursed remuneration by the affected board members to the company.
