Africa Rise and Shine.


The size and calibre of dignitarie­s at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos venue of the launch of Africa Arise and Shine on Monday, September 17, lend credence to the zenith Jim James Ovia has attained in the global banking world.

The book launch was a convergenc­e of Nigeria’s top political and economic players. And even President Muhammadu Buhari, who could not attend the ceremony, commended the entreprene­urship of the Founder and Chairman of Zenith Bank for his contributi­ons to the country’s economy, especially the financial sector.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo lauded Ovia’s philanthro­pic gestures, particular­ly his investment in education.

Africa Rise And Shine, published by ForbesBook­s, chronicles the story of how he built one of Nigeria’s largest financial institutio­ns, Zenith Bank Plc, within the last three decades, recounting the series of events that led to Ovia’s triumph in Nigeria’s difficult business turf.
