When the African Investors Conference organized by the Standard Bank Group
was held in London from June 25-27, 2019, it was apt that the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr. Ebenezer Onyeagwu had to be there with other attendees. Zenith Bank Plc is a top Tier One new Generation bank in Nigeria with international branches in Ghana, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, The UK, UAE, China and a Representative office in South Africa.
Zenith Bank Plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange, LSE.
Such conferences are critically important in fashioning out aspects and modalities for financial interventions needed to power infrastructural deficits, to surplus as well as uplifting industry that will move Africa as a whole for the continent to Rise And Shine as a step towards joining the developing and developed countries of the world.
That would key perfectly into the wish of the founder of the over $16 billion worth bank, Agbor born Mr. Jim Ovia that the young people of “his home country, Nigeria, and throughout Africa, take advantage of the tremendous opportunities Africa has to offer”, rather than fleeing to Europe as economic migrants.
Such international investors’ conferences are poised as the financial watershed to take away the hopelessness Forbes magazine saw in the African continent in May 2000, to the new sign of a risen continent, with Nigeria’s boundless energy in the forefront as leaders.
