Serial Digital Entrepreneur and Chairman of Zinox Group, Leo Stan Ekeh, has described the composition of the new Board of Directors of MTN Nigeria chaired by Dr. Ernest Ndukwe as a pride to Africans and the best ever on this side of the Atlantic in the first quarter of 21st century.
Ekeh, chatting with some senior tech reporters over the weekend, described the pedigree of men and women assembled on the MTN Nigeria Board as unmatched anywhere in the world, including corporate America.
His words: “These are men and women who have delivered different assignments creatively in this country. They are not imported with artificial profiles.
“When you have assemblage of first class tech regulator, auditor, accountant, banker, tax expert, tested Entrepreneurs and more on one Board, you can only anticipate positive result.
“I must commend South Africans for believing us and having the will to appoint this quality of Nigerians. They know the digital and financial value of these men and women they have assembled if the compound power of their brains were to be traded in any Stock market in the world.
“They have added impetus to the quality of the last Board of Directors headed by Dr. Pascal Dozie.”
When asked if he holds substantial shares in MTN, Ekeh said he has no single share in the company past and present, “but when you see things like this, it means there is hope. It is nearly same thing happening in First Bank with Mrs Mrs. Ibukun Awosika and team.”
