Africa Rise and Shine.

Boundless Magazine - - Events -

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.
