TONY ELUMELU BAGS LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD IN ABIDJAN



The Ivorian National Council of Employers, General Confederation of Enterprises of Côte d’Ivoire (CGECI) has presented African businessman and investor, Tony Elumelu, with its 2016 CGECI Lifetime Achievement Award in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The formal presentation, held at the 5th edition of the annual CGECI Academy, was to honour Elumelu on his leadership and key role as an African business champion. The event was attended by over three thousand delegates across Africa including top government officials, business leaders, established and aspiring entrepreneurs.


Since its initiation in 2012 by the Ivorian National council of Employers, the annual economic forum, CGECI Academy, has provided a platform to raise awareness among African entrepreneurs about existing sources of capital and investors available to help grow and develop their businesses. The forum seeks to change the paradigm of access to finance in Côte d’Ivoire, creating a platform for sharing experiences and expertise. 

Furthermore, it aims to present the Ivorian private sector to regional and international partners and highlight the achievements and the opportunities within it.
Other activities during the event include the announcement of the yearly business plan competition and a segment dedicated to sharing the experiences and testimonials of entrepreneurs.

The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, Daniel Kablan Duncan, and the Prime Minister of Mauritius, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, among other business leaders and senior government officials.
