The Honourable Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr Okechukwu Enelamah will be sharing his experience and outstanding success in business and public service with the delegates of the second cohort of the Ausso Leadership Academy (ALA), which will hold from June 4th at the Entrepreneurs’ Hub at Lekki.

The interaction will touch on the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (EGRP), developed to restore economic growth while leveraging the ingenuity and resilience of the Nigerian people. It is also articulated with the understanding that the role of government in the 21st century must evolve from that of being an omnibus provider of citizens’ needs into a force for eliminating the bottlenecks that impede innovation and market-based solutions. The initiative has delivered immense dividend in its relatively short period of implementation.

In his response to the invitation to share his experience at the Academy, Dr Enelama said: “I am aware of what the Ausso Leadership Academy is doing to close the leadership knowledge gap in Corporate Nigeria, and I am happy to support the effort”.

Speaking on the development, the Founder and Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Ausso Leadership Academy, Mr Austin Okere noted that Dr Enelamah’s endorsement is critical to the efforts of the Ausso Leadership Academy in the quest for corporate human capital development, and stressed that the Minister’s interaction will be instrumental in motivating the delegates too much greater aspirations.

According to Okere “it is a privilege to have one of the very best public officers, with an enviable record of performance come and share his experience with the delegates”. “His insights will provide a robust perspective on the intersection between business and public service”, he said.
