In a tweet thanking Fidelity Bank Plc by Ndubuisi Ekekwe he wrote:
“Good People, join me to thank Fidelity Bank PLC Nigeria for its uncommon kindness, generosity and support to Tekedia Institute.
“Since we began this community public-benefit mission of empowering young people and professionals with knowledge, the goodwill has been super-amazing.
“Thank you – may you win more markets and territories, as you continue to serve clients with your banking services.
Ndubuisi Ekekwe is a Professor, Inventor and Entrepreneur. Lead Faculty of Tekedia Institute, and Chairman of Tekedia Capital. Since 2009, a Harvard Business Review writer.
He is currently exploring “a big irony”, and says “everyone wants to leave Nigeria. But quickly you leave Nigeria, you would realize that everything you are looking for is ACTUALLY in Nigeria.
Check all Nigerians in America out. More than 99% of them are looking for opportunities in Nigeria!
Yes, everyone is trying to invest, build or do something because the conclusion is clear: America will pay the bills but Nigeria could make you rich.
For me, I have been working to keep my Nigerian accent intact, as it offers me competitive advantages to connect in the Nigerian market.
Funny, isn’t it ?
Why miss the market? We all want to wake up with Nigeria on our minds because everything there is opportunity.
So, as you “japa” ( exit), do not lose your bearing and contacts. Many things are amazing in Nigeria on how we structure our companies and promotions.
There, everyone at the same level earns the same thing. But in the US, you can earn more than your supervisor. Yes, democracy does not reach compensation! It is legendary.
Reverse remote “japa” is real! That is fueling all these big startups!
