The Top10 Magazine, a monthly publication that celebrates ten leading lights in every sector of the society has named Africa’s richest man Alhaji Dangote, President of Dangote Group as the top 10 industrialists in Nigeria.
Also listed are Mr Oba Otudeko, Founder of Honeywell Group, Innocent Chukwuma, CEO of Innoson Industries, Abdulsamad Rabiu, Chief Executive Officer of BUA Group and Cletus Ibeto, CEO of Ibeto group.
Others are Razaq Okoya, owner of the Eleganza Industries, Stella Okoli, CEO of Emzor Pharmaceuticals, Fidelis Anyebea, CEO of Fidson Healthcare Services, Uchechukwu Ogah, President of Masters Energy Group, and Chika Okafor, CEO of Chicasson Group of Companies.
The list is contained in the latest edition of The Top10 Magazine which focuses on leading indigenous Nigerian industrialists engaged in production activities, manufacturing and other forms of industrial enterprises to grow the Nigerian economy.
The publisher of the magazine, Tony Iji stated in a release that “at a time when the Nigerian economy is going through serious challenges as a result of the drop in oil prices and the restiveness in the Niger Delta, what is required to move the country forward is economic diversification and in our considered view, we believe that industrialisation is a key component to pay attention to, hence our decision to dedicate the latest edition of the magazine to celebrate men and women who have distinguished themselves as the leading lights of Nigeria’s industrialisation journey”.
He said that selecting the 10 industrialists out of thousands of business men and women who engage in industrial enterprises in Nigeria was not an easy task. “But our team of researchers has done a good job and has come up with a list of 10 leading business men and women behind Nigeria’s industrial development.
The list contains not just the big names in the economy, but those who are truly engaged in production, manufacturing and other forms of industrial enterprises to grow the Nigerian economy. The selected ten have distinguished themselves as the leading lights of Nigeria’s industrial revolution”.
The magazine also features stories on Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe Dynasty of entrepreneurs and Sijibomi Ogundele the 33-year old CEO of Sujimoto Group of companies, who has taken the Nigerian real estate market by storm becoming, arguably, Nigeria’s own Donald Trump. Plus a feature on UBA and its template for seamless leadership transition, and an X-Ray on Zenith bank, Nigeria’s most profitable bank.
