Tinubu, who was also appointed as AYE patron, was conferred with the award at his Bourdillon-Ikoyi, Lagos residence recently by a six-man delegation of AYE from South Africa.

A statement issued by Tinubu’s media office in Lagos said the former Lagos State governor and business mogul, was described as an exemplary leader by the AYE President, Mr. Summy Smart Francis, a Nigerian based in South Africa.

According to the statement, while presenting the Honorary Achievement Award to Tinubu, Francis said, “This award is given to entrepreneurs and business people that have made a huge impact on the continent and are known around the globe through their business achievements. “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Africa sees you and recognises you. You are an African Icon.”

The statement said in his response at the occasion , Tinubu called on the youth of Africa to save their continent from economic and political stagnation by applying what he called “Commonsense Revolution” to all that they do.

He also advised them to conquer fear by rigorously challenging bad government policies where necessary, saying this is the needed ingredients to grow entrepreneurship on the continent.

Asiwaju Tinubu also admonished the six-man AYE team not to let fear prevent them from striving for excellence in all they do , urging young investors to believe in themselves and be fearlessly inquisitive.
