CNBC Africa has nominated me for its Innovator of the Year award. This is the zenith of awards celebrating the finest of African business leaders and innovators. In its letter informing me about this nomination, it explains the purpose of this recognition: “CNBC Africa honour[s] remarkable leadership and salute game changers of business on the continent for their continuing commitment to excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies.”
I find joy in fixing market frictions and I love business. It is very delightful when my works improve the lives of people. I treasure the moments when I walk into rooms, and men and women hug me because my works have helped their lives and businesses. We would remain focused because Africa must innovate to thrive.
Sure – I have not won anything on this nomination. But I do know that my clients and customers are winning, and from Aug 1, 2018 those in the healthcare sector will begin to win as we launch Medcera across Nigerian cities to support everyone in the healthcare sector.
Thank you CNBC Africa and AABLA!
