July, 12 2023.

As Nigeria continues to march towards the Renewed Hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, it’s well known to all and sundry that the president has committed to working with the finest brains, productive hands and enterprising minds in his cabinet.

Emmanuel Akpakwu MFR has continually been on the lips of many as one of the potential names to get in to the cabinet of the new president. The call for Akpakwu is hinged on his track record as a thriving foreign envoy, successful entrepreneur, wealth creator, astute administrator and a passionate philanthropist.

While working as the Consul of the Republic of Philippines, Akpakwu has leveraged on this vista to facilitate transnational trade that has been mutually beneficial to both Nigeria and Philippines. In his capacity, he has sponsored young Nigerians to gain skills and education at different national and international institutions, while giving them the opportunity to thrive in their respective areas of expertise and training.

While he has maintained a high profile as a technocrat, he has excelled as a wealth creator, an employer of labor and a successful entrepreneur. Akpakwu introduced Alliance in Motion Global Inc. into the Nigerian market, and the organization has gone on to produce young millionaires in the country. As he seats on the board of a number of organizations, he has continually created job opportunities for young people, prioritizing skills and human capital development.

Emmanuel Akpakwu’s hard work did not go unrecognized as he was named amongst distinguished Nigerians awarded with the national honour of Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (MFR), by Ex President Muhammadu Buhari.

His enterprising mind has seen him achieve lofty goals in the corporate sector, pulling resources and factors of production to enhance growth. His philanthropic acts has seen him take up medical bills, and even construct roads and bridges linking communities in his native state.

It is evident Akpakwu deserves the encomiums splashed on him and the call to be a part of the team of technocrats, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is building.

The young technocrat has exemplified passion in sports development, youth advocacy, entrepreneurship, foreign policy advancement, as well as education.
