As a business, we would continue to explore different areas in the rapidly evolving growing economies, not only to make a statement as a brand but to contribute to further expansion.

We believe investment in critical sectors of the economy would not only create jobs for the youths but also help to improve the economic prosperity of the continent as a whole,” Odii said.
