In the midst of the national paralysis, I want to commend a young man who joined Tekedia Mini-MBA with no clarity on how to execute an idea he has nurtured over the years: exporting agro products to Europe from Nigeria. Today, Elwin Mubba just sent me a note that “ElwinGroup has successfully completed her NonOilExport of one of her Agro Products (Turmeric) to the EU. ..Thank you for the Tekedia MBA course”. Congratulations.
I also want to thank our Faculty Victoria Madedor for her course on alternative funding. That course opened avenues and Elwin was able to get necessary support.
In the video as they boxed the products into containers, you will notice one thing: a big “Proudly Nigerian” on the boxes. That proudly Nigerian is absolute because Elwin and his team designed, constructed and commissioned the factory in Awka with all materials sourced locally. As I reported last year when he sent updates to me, he used “export” and “99.5 purity guaranteed” to describe his playbook. Today, he has delivered. Well done Elwin Group.
