Mrs Elumelu asks African journalists to buy into husband’s development projects

Earlier on Saturday morning, Dr Awele Elumelu, Chairperson of Avon Healthcare Limited/Chief Executive Officer of Avon Medical Services Limited and wife to the billionaire philanthropist, Tony Elumelu urged African journalists to buy into her husband’s Africapitalism philosophy.

Mrs Elumelu who has championed a cause of sustainable health care delivery in Nigeria, and has consistently called for proper monitoring, accountability and equitable distribution of the funds within health care system, said one of the effective ways to make impact was for African journalists to buy into her husband’s vision of developing the continent.

According to her, the stories the journalists tell will have more effect if it was coming from a place of conviction, rather than from an outsider’s perspective.
