MTN new Board is best corporate Board in Africa – Zinox Chairman
Serial digital entrepreneur and Chairman of Zinox Group in a chart with some senior tech reporters
has described the composition of the new Board of Directors of MTN chaired by Dr. Ernest Ndukwe
as a pride to Africans and the best ever on this side of the Atlantic in the 1st quarter of the 21st century.
He described the pedigree of men and women assembled on the MTN Board as unmatched anywhere in the world including corporate America.
These are men and women who have delivered different assignments creatively in this country. They
are not imported with artificial profiles.
When you have assemblage of a first class tech regulator, Auditor, Accountant, banker, tax expert,
tested entrepreneurs and more on one Board, you can only anticipate positive result.
I must commend South Africans for believing in us and having the will to appoint this quality of
Nigerians. They know the digital and financial value of these men and women they have assembled if
the compound power of their brains were to be traded in any Stock market in the world.
They have added impetus to the quality of the last Board of Directors headed by Dr. Pascal Dozie.
When asked if he holds substantial shares in MTN, he said he has no single share past and present,
but when you see things like this, it means there is hope. It is nearly the same thing happening in First
Bank with Mrs. Ibukun Awosika and her team.
