ADVAN elects new president
The Advertisers Association of Nigeria (ADVAN) has got a new president in the person of the Brand Building Director of Unilever Nigeria Plc, Mr. David Okeme. With his emergence, he would succeed Mr. Kola Oyeyemi, who had served his two terms. He was elected last weekend at the 16th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Marketers’ evening of the association in Lagos.
Okeme got 11 votes to emerge against his challenger, Commercial Director of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Mr. Kachi Onabogu who got 4 votes.
An elated Okeme called for a new understanding among professionals in the industry, as it was critical to taking the profession to the next level and greater heights. He also believed that stakeholders in the industry needed to do more to truly account for the huge sum being expended on advertising.
He solicited for the support of other members of the executive to enable his administration to step up from where Oyeyemi had stopped.
He said, “I was a member of the past administration led by Kola Oyeyemi that did well for ADVAN. This administration will create new initiative and you have to wait and see what we will bring on board”.
