 The United Bank for Africa (UBA) on Tuesday drove activity on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) with a turnover of 2.09 billion shares valued at N19.76 billion.

Mr Ambrose Omordion, the Chief Operating Officer, InvestData Ltd., attributed the activity in UBA to part of the management’s plan to reduce the bank’s issued shares in line with the shareholders’ mandate.

Omordion said that the bank had a scheme for members of staff and the shares in the scheme were in excess of two billion ordinary shares which were offloaded.

He said that the transaction would boost both the bank’s earnings and dividend payout going forward.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the volume of shares traded closed higher due to huge activity posted by UBA.

Consequently, a total of 2.40 billion shares worth N21. 61 billion were transacted in 3,715 deals against 322.81 million shares valued at N2.73 billion achieved in 3,830 deals on Monday.

Oando traded 13.59 million shares worth N89.96 million and Skye Bank accounted for 9.31 million shares valued at N5.59 million.

Also, the NSE market indices appreciated further with the All-Share Index growing by 135.18 points or 0.41 per cent to close at 33,436.61 against 33,301.43 recorded on Monday.

Similarly, the market capitalisation rose by N46 billion or 0.40 per cent to close at N11.523 trillion in contrast with N11.477 trillion posted on Monday, due to price gains.
