The Brainy Awele Elumelu


As a man, you must count yourself lucky, if you are blessed with a beautiful, humble, faithful and pious wife.

This, no doubt, is one of the things Tony Elumelu, Chairman, United Bank for Africa, UBA, is grateful to God for. But not too many know his wife, Awele, particularly because she detests unnecessary publicity.

Nevertheless, those who have encountered the respected medical doctor at social events attest to the fact that she is not a snub.  She cherishes her privacy greatly and usually makes lasting statements with her dress sense whenever she steps out with her husband.

Very brainy, the CEO, Avon Medical Services Limited holds a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of Benin. She worked with the Grantham and District Hospital, Grantham, United Kingdom. She had also worked with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital,
