Africa Pru­den­tial wants vi­brant co­op­er­a­tives

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Chris Agabi

Chair­man of Africa Pru­den­tial Plc, Chief. Eniola Fa­day­omi has called for a vi­brant co-op­er­a­tive sys­tem in Nige­ria as agents of eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

Speak­ing at a din­ner hosted by AP Plc for Co-op­er­a­tive Stake­hold­ers in Africa, Mrs. Fa­day­omi said “we want the co­op­er­a­tive move­ment in Nige­ria to be­come as ac­tive as it is in other parts of Africa.”

“For a coun­try of this size and with the kind of ex­po­sure that we have in Nige­ria, it’s amaz­ing that we are not fea­tur­ing as much as we should be on the con­ti­nen­tal co­op­er­a­tive scheme and we all know now that global al­liances and global in­ter­ac­tion is the order of the day. So, I re­ally do hope that we en­sure and take ad­van­tage,” she said.

She also used the oc­ca­sion to chal­lenge the new man­age­ment board of AP Plc to in­tro­duce in­no­va­tive ideas to drive the or­gan­i­sa­tion for­ward.

The Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor / CEO, AP Plc Mr. Peter Ashade, said AP Plc wants to be known for ‘De­vel­op­ment’.

“That is why we had con­sis­tently put our money where our heart is by part­ner­ing with Co­op­er­a­tive Fed­er­a­tion of Nige­ria” he said.
