The beautiful journey of Bolaji Akinboro as co-founder of Cellulant Nigeria Limited has ended.

Sources close to the Fintech company established in 2014 told Social Circuit that the co-founder has resigned his position as the Chief Executive Officer. Some other staff are also said to have exited the firm.

Just last year, Cellulant’s agricultural event was widely celebrated.  So, it came as a shock to industry watchers when news of Akinboro’s sudden resignation emerged.

The former CEO is a pioneer of some top agricultural, payment and work creation initiatives in Nigeria.
