The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) says it will stop operations of the Capital Market Operators (CMOs) yet to renew their registration on May 31.

The commission disclosed this in a circular signed by the management on Monday in Abuja.

The commission said that the CMOs yet to renew their registration at the expiration of late filing on May 31, would not be eligible to operate in the capital market.

Consequently, the commission said that late filing for renewal of registration would only be entertained from May 1 to May 31.

It said that the CMOs were required to have completed the renewal process on or before April 30.

The commission noted that names of the CMOs that had renewed their registration would be published on SEC’s website and national dailies.

It added that the names of eligible CMOs would be communicated to the relevant Securities Exchanges and Trade Associations.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the SEC had in March issued a circular to the general public and the CMOs for the reintroduction of the periodic renewal of registration by operators.
