Business magnate and former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi has hailed Technology Distributions Ltd. (TD Africa) as an organization built on integrity and sound credentials. He stated this while speaking at Celebrating You 2019, an annual year-end dinner/awards party organized by Sub-Saharan Africa’s biggest ICT products distributors, TD.

The event, arguably the most eagerly-awaited celebratory event in the Nigerian ICT ecosystem, was held on Sunday, December 8th 2019 at the prestigious Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

On an annual basis, Celebrating You focuses on sharing deep insights with attendees on diverse areas of the economy. The 2019 edition was not different as Obi proved a fitting resource person who drew from his personal experiences in addressing guests.

‘‘I must mention that I have a special relationship with TD which is based on performance. It is a company that you can rely on. I remember many years ago while I was still in office at exactly 1 am when I called Mr Leo Stan Ekeh to say I wanted to buy 30,000 laptops. I still recall his response until today. He told me that he does not do business with state governments and that even if he wanted to, he does not think the Anambra State Government could afford to pay for the 30,000 laptops without credit.

‘‘I assured him that the laptops would all be paid for which we did upfront without collecting a bank guarantee. And they were supplied by TD and all of them deployed to specifications down to the very last one. I must confess, the execution beat our expectations. Today, the feat achieved by the Regina Pacis school girls who shocked the world at Silicon Valley, the USA in 2018 can be attributed to this effort by TD and the Zinox Chairman. Though we paid for the equipment TD added huge value and Anambra is better for it till date.  Also, Anambra State has continued to emerge tops in school knowledge tests and examinations conducted over the past couple of years. The investment in technology and TD’s contribution played a key role in making this happen,’’ he said.

Obi, who was the Special Guest of Honour and who was wearing the cap of entrepreneur at the event, further described TD’s place in the Nigerian ICT distribution landscape as very essential to the current developments and gains recorded in the sector. Further, he urged budding entrepreneurs and small business owners to borrow a leaf from TD’s remarkable consistency, a track record of delivery and integrity which has seen it all the way to the top.

Also speaking at the event, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), TD Africa, Mrs. Chioma Ekeh identified tenacity as the enduring attribute that has kept the organization at the top of its game over the past 20 years.

‘‘This quality, more than anything else, sets TD apart and makes us different. We keep our promises,’’ she said.

Further, she heaped praises on the entire Management and staff of TD, whom she described as the lifeblood of the company, even as she expressed deep gratitude to the special guests and other attendees for honouring the invitation.

The Zinox Group Chairman, Ekeh who extended best wishes of the season to all, also assured younger entrepreneurs that there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel with the rebranding of the Ministry of Communications to Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy by President Muhammadu Buhari and with a tested hand as the Minister.

‘‘The new addition resonates confidence and assures certified future for smart entrepreneurs,’’ he enthused.

Meanwhile, the event witnessed the presentation of awards to deserving Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and other channel partners. Top winners on the night include Dell-EMC, Huawei, Konga, Edgebase Line Ltd. Allied Computers, HPI, among others. The event also witnessed top-notch performances from A-list artistes including Kizz Daniel, Flavour, comedian SLK and Okey Bakassi who doubled as the MC/compere.

Equally important, Celebrating You remains arguably the only one which brings together the major competing local and international Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and other stakeholders in the industry under one roof, albeit in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

In attendance was a host of knowledge-driven resource persons including former Vice-Chancellor, University of Lagos, Prof. Ibidapo Obe; Chairman TD Board of Directors, Prof Anya O. Anya; former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Ernest Ebi; Group Deputy Managing Director, Access Bank, Roosevelt Ogbonna; among many others.
