Also speaking at the event, Mr Akeredolu Ale, Managing Director, Lagos Commodities and Futures Exchange (LCFE), said he was excited to announce that the first consignment of physical gold traded spot via a SEC-approved gold instrument (Dukia Gold Exchange Traded Certificate) is to be listed and traded on the Exchange.

He explained that the gold instrument i.e., Dukia Gold Exchange Traded Certificate (DGETC) issued by Dukia Gold is a tradeable certificate backed by one-kilogram LBMA Standard IPM – Gold Bar with a fineness of 999.9 to be traded on the LCFE.

Mr Akeredolu said the LCFE, being a regulated exchange by the SEC offers investors a structured market to easily trade in gold and other IPMs, especially the DGETC gold instrument which is an electronic certificate (instrument) available for trade in the primary and secondary market of the Exchange.

The Managing Director of Dukia Gold, Mrs Bose Owolabi, encouraged the investing public to key into the DGETC (a 1kg physical gold investment opportunity) that Dukia Gold has introduced into the Nigerian Capital Market.

She said Gold has over time proven to be a hedge against economic uncertainties and inflation, a portfolio diversifier, and a store of wealth.

The Chairman of Dukia Gold, Mr Tunde Fagbemi, commended the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (MMSD), the SEC, the LCFE and other stakeholders for creating an enabling environment for Investment in Precious Metals in Nigeria as this will potentially drive growth and boost the economy.
