The African Business Roundtable (ABR) has inaugurated Mr. Samuel Dossou-Aworet as the new president of the group, who takes over from Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
The new president, whom Tukur described as “a passionate crusader for good governance, an advocate for regional integration and a very successful business personality” had a very successful career in the public and private sector.
The roundtable also made far reaching resolutions that would expand the frontiers of private African businesses in anticipation of an increasing stable political climate.
Mr. Ebrima Faal, senior director, Nigeria for AfDB, representing the president of the bank, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, in his keynote address highlighted the historical ties between the Bank and ABR, which it helped to set up in 1990.
He further noted that ‘ABR was Africa’s foremost and continent-wide association of businesses and business leaders, and truly a successful Pan-African institution’.
He stated that the Bank would work closely with the public and private sector to unlock new sources of growth for Africa.
Faal stressed the need to reduce inequality between countries working together to unlock the enormous potential of African economies and deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals for Africa.
