Nigeria: Macron for 2,000 TEF Entrepreneurs in Lagos

President Muhammadu Buhari thanks President Macron for his understanding and his commitment towards Nigeria and West Africa. We will continue to work with France for the benefit of both countries, in security, the fight against corruption, the economy, and in tackling the effects of climate change.

French President Emmanuel Macron will on Wednesday, be interacting with more than 2,000 budding entrepreneurs from Africa. The entrepreneurs are alumni of the Tony Elumelu Foundation(TEF) Entrepreneurship Programme.

The session, which is the highlight of Macron's visit to the country, will be chaired by UBA chairman, and TEF founder, Mr. Tony Elumelu. It will give African entrepreneurs a platform to closely engage with President Macron, and garner ideas from his wealth of experience as one of the youngest Heads of State in recent times.

The session will also provide a platform where participants can network and forge partnerships with French and African business leaders and policymakers who will be in attendance.

Speaking ahead of the event, Elumelu said the collaboration between the French President and TEF is a result of President Macron's acknowledgement that African entrepreneurs remain the key to Africa's economic transformation, and his desire to connect with and elevate the voices of future leaders.
