Nigerians Making Progress

Beyond the fraud cases, visa woes and political drama, Nigerians are making us proud on the global scene. Just this week Segun Agbaje was appointed as a board member to PepsiCo: one of the largest food and beverage businesses in the world. This is a fantastic development, so I’m surprised we aren’t talking more about it.

Segun Agbaje joins other Nigerians on prominent boards. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is a board member of Twitter and has recently been nominated as a Director General for the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Likewise, Professor Enase Okonedo, the Dean of @lbsnigeria, also joined the Board of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) in June last month. GMAC is the organisation that owns the standardised GMAT tests – you know, those tough exams you take to get into leading business schools “in the abroad” 😀

We are still doing well!
