According to the company, the event will provide a platform for chief executives of African businesses, international investors and policymakers to champion private sector-led growth on the continent. The forum will be held in Kigali, Rwanda, on March 25 and 26.

“We share Africa CEO Forum’s objective of using regional integration to drive private sector growth and create more African champions,” Globacom said in a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday.

Globacom is the 2019 Apex Diamond partner of the event. The company’s Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Mrs. Bella Disu, will also play a prominent role at the forum as chair of the ‘Women in Business Initiative’ session.


“This is part of our efforts to empower African businesses and spur economic growth in the region. Since we started operations in 2003, we have been in the forefront of promoting economic growth. We have continuously invested heavily in building reliable communication infrastructure to support economic freedom,” the company declared.

They will discuss key challenges facing Africa’s private sector, including the “representation of top women executives in the boardroom and the modernization of family business governance”.
