The founder of LEAP Africa, Ndidi Nwuneli has stressed the importance of entrepreneurs in economic transformation.
Nwuneli who was the guest speaker at the graduation of the 13 Executive Programme of the Lagos Business School recently, further stated that for Nigeria to be reckoned with in the comity of nations in the world, individuals who are innovative, visionary and ethical would be required in the country.
She therefore challenged the new graduates to think of ways they can do things differently and implored them to “leave their egos and differences and work together to build a better Nigeria.”
Also, the Vice-Chancellor, Pan Atlantic University, Lagos, Professor Juan Elegido, was quoted in a statement to have congratulated all the graduates and implored them to be good ambassadors of the institution by putting to use the knowledge they have acquired to better the country and the African continent.
He also applauded the graduates for their zeal to study at LBS despite the economic recession which could deter many professionals from investing in their self-development.
Similarly, the Dean, Lagos Business School, Dr. Enase Okonedo, congratulated the graduates and new alumni of the institution and appreciated them for their commitment which according to her, enabled the institution to equip itself to be able to contribute its quota of providing quality education and professional development to individuals and corporate bodies
The Chief Executive Officer of Rexton Industries Limited, Ify Ukachukwu, who graduated from the Owner Managers Programme (OMP 22) said she felt gratified being a graduate of the LBS.
