Architect and fashion enthusiast, Fifi Ejindu, was recently honoured with an award of Iconic Female Entrepreneur of the Year at the recently concluded Democracy Hero Award in Abuja.
She was also inducted as the President of the Angola-Nigeria Business Council by former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, alongside other eminent members, who ensured a smooth trade and investment relationship between Angola and Nigeria.
The induction was held at the First Interactive Diplomatic/Business Forum for Angola-Nigeria in Abuja.
In her acceptance speech, which was contained in a statement made available to Society Plus, Ejindu said she was passionate about the growth of Africa and by extension, Angola and Nigeria.
She said, “Heading the Angola-Nigeria Business Council is an opportunity to deepen the relationship of both countries beyond government to government interactions by bringing together business leaders for the purposes of exploring opportunities that both countries have to offer.
“The Angola-Nigeria Business Council has been established to serve as a driver for advancing economic cooperation with the private sectors of both countries taking the lead.
“Most importantly, it will serve as an advisory instrument of business policy to the governments of both Angola and Nigeria. I must extend my highest regard and thanks to the Ambassador of Angola to Nigeria, Jose Bamoquina Zau, for this interactive diplomatic/business dinner being hosted for the business community, and for his deep interest in facilitating a strong relationship building between our nations’ two private sector elites.”
She also appreciated the Angolan President, Joao Lourenco, and President Bola Tinubu for their support.
