I’ve also hustled – Tony Elumelu

UBA and Transcorp Tony Elumelu

Founder of Heirs Holdings, Tony Elumelu, says he has lived in Africa all his life and has also hustled before being successful.

Mr Elumelu said this in a tweet on Tuesday with a picture of himself at work.

“I have lived my entire life in Africa. I know our story – I have lived it all, from hustling to success,” he said.

The chairman of United Bank for Africa (UBA) also called on African entrepreneurs to apply for this year’s edition of Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme.

“The transformation of Africa is not one man’s job. It is a job for all of us, and by empowering these entrepreneurs, we are helping to create more jobs and wealth on the continent,” Elumelu said in another tweet.
