Awele Elumelu Complements Her Husband’s Milk of Kindness


Society Watch
Though she is not as famous as her husband, it is deliberate, Dr. Awele Elumelu, the beautiful wife of Africa’s banking guru, Tony Elumelu, shies away from publicity. She values her privacy.

It was gathered that she complements her husband’s efforts in the area of empowering young entrepreneurs.
The brilliant woman is also a trustee of the Tony Elumelu Foundation and can be best described as the silent supporter of female entrepreneurs in Africa.

It was gathered that 3,000 young women across Africa will receive a non-refundable grant of $5000 each to further their entrepreneurial and business ideas, courtesy of the beautiful woman.

This mother of twins, through her Avon Healthcare and her husband’s NGO, has been catering to many indigent persons in the society, just as the TEF has made many entrepreneurs to be on the upswing.

What you can’t take away from Awele, a feminist, is her uncommon frankness, particularly on issues that are dear to her heart.

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 Hospita; (LUTH).
