Tony Elumelu, CON
Tony O. Elumelu is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and the chairman of Heirs Holdings Limited. He also serves as chairman of the board of Heirs Insurance Brokers Limited. In his early career, Mr Elumelu made a name for himself by turning the nearly bankrupt Standard Trust Bank into a top-five player in Nigeria. In 2005 he led the largest merger in the banking sector in sub-Saharan Africa, acquiring United Bank for Africa (UBA). In five years he transformed it from a single-country bank to a pan-African institution with over 7 million customers in 19 African countries. Following his retirement from UBA in 2010, at age 47, Mr Elumelu commenced full-time operations at Heirs Holdings and founded The Tony Elumelu Foundation, an Africa-based and African-funded philanthropic organization dedicated to the promotion of entrepreneurship in Africa through interventions in the areas of business leadership, policy and access to finance. He serves as a member of the USAID's Private Capital Group for Africa Partners Forum. He sits on the Nigerian President's Agricultural Transformation Implementation Council and serves as Co-Chair of the Aspen Institute Dialogue Series on Global Food Security. He played a leading role in the formation of the National Competitiveness Council of Nigeria and now serves as its vice chairman. He chairs the Ministerial Committee to establish world-class hospitals and diagnostic centres across Nigeria, at the invitation of the Federal Government. Mr Elumelu is the author and leading proponent of the philosophy he calls "Africapitalism," which is the private sector's commitment to Africa's development through long-term investment in strategic sectors of the economy that drive economic prosperity and social wealth. In 2003 the Federal Government of Nigeria conferred the national honour of Member of the Federal Republic on Mr Elumelu. In 2012 he was awarded the National Honour of Commander of the Order of the Niger for his service in promoting private enterprise. In 2013, Mr Elumelu received the Leadership Award in Business and Philanthropy from the Africa-America Institute (AAI) Awards. He was also named African Business Icon at the 2013 African Business Awards. In Nigeria, Dr Elumelu has worked with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital and, in the UK, with Grantham and District Hospital, Grantham. She is the Chief Executive Officer of Avon Medical Services Limited and oversees the healthcare investments of the Heirs Holdings group.

Chairman of Heirs Holdings, Mr. Tony Elumelu, yesterday appealed to the leading candidates in the United States presidential election - Democratic Party's Hilary Clinton and Republican Party's Donald Trump - to retain the prevailing US-Africa policy, saying it was adequate and would only need to be expanded and scaled up.
Elumelu, who spoke on the theme, entrepreneurship, is one of Africa's leading entrepreneurs, who isdedicating time and money to create a new generation of African business women and men, committing $100 million of his own money to the laudable project. According to him, "If we give our people the economic tools to thrive and living standards increase, the political challenges that Africa face can be tackled and fundamental positive change can be assured. He, therefore, called on the next US president to work in shared purpose with Africans on implementing innovative solutions to the complex but surmountable challenges in Africa. He challenged the American electorate to impress it on their candidates and the eventual president to engage more with Africa. "So when you meet, write, call and email your political candidates and representatives and the elected president in November, tell them that when it comes to Africa, you want more. And by more, I mean more engagements, more positively impactful policies and more development and commercial investment in Africa," Elumelu said. Closing his address at the eventful conference, Elumelu said: "I am an unashamed optimist and I believe that working together, in shared purpose, which is what Africapitalism is about, we can help usher in economic transformation that will ensure Africa is a critical player in the 21st century global economy.
