Founder of The Tony Elumelu Foundation and Chairman of Heirs Holdings Limited, Nigerian economist, investor and philanthropist Tony Elumelu is acknowledged to be one of the continent’s most influential entrepreneurs.

On his official website Elumelu speaks of ‘Africapitalism’ or the commitment of the private sector towards economic transformation in Africa. He regularly tweets and uses the forum to discuss pertinent economic and business issues.

In February 2016, via a report by AllAfrica.com, Elumelu had applauded the U.S. Congress Passage of Electrify Africa Act.

The Electrify Africa Act creates a framework for a major public-private partnership between the United States and sub-Saharan African countries to help millions of people gain access to affordable and reliable electricity.

It also codifies access to electricity in Africa as a US foreign policy priority, thereby preserving President Barack Obama’s Power Africa Initiative for years to come.
