The two-day forum organised by TEF in Lagos, ended over the weekend with issues of Africa’s economic development forming the core discussion, as well as a private sector-led and entrepreneurially driven African economy.
“Across agriculture, ICT, hospitality, fashion, energy, manufacturing and many other fields, the breadth and depth of talent and innovation on display in the current and previous Tony Elumelu entrepreneurship cohorts have shown that there is indeed hope,” the vice president said

In the same vein, Alhaji Dangote said there have been changes in the interaction between government and the private sector, adding that the entrepreneurs are the ones that are going to create jobs, while governments facilitate jobs.
