Popoola, a digital democracy campaigner and the creator of the Rate Your Leader app, is to lead a Special Interest Group for Africa established by the UK Institute of Directors (IoD)-one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious business leader groups. According to him, the IoD Africa SIG will stimulate business opportunities, increase networking, and grow awareness of British businesses in Africa and African businesses in Britain. It had earlier been reported that the Nigerian Government, through the NPHCDA, had earlier recommended that only eligible Nigerians from age 18 and above would be allowed to take the vaccine. The IoD Africa SIG will be launched in London on May 19, 2022, with all African diplomatic missions and some heads of state expected to attend. A statement by MultiChoice Nigeria described Atinuke Babatunde as a seasoned professional with over 20 years’ experience spanning entertainment, branding, research, media management, marketing, and strategy. In a statement, he stated that prior to the launch, serious bi-monthly online roundtables would be held to discuss post-COVID-19 and Brexit business opportunities for UK and African businesses. Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation’s regional office for Africa, on Thursday, declared the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as the dominant strain in two African countries – Nigeria and Cape Verde. The UK Government has already negotiated eight free trade agreements with African countries and trading blocs since Brexit, creating tariff and duty-free trade between Britain and 30 African nations-this means significant opportunities for African consumers and companies, not least in 24 English speaking countries. These key absences were also compounded with the fact that the Nigerian FA had decided only prior to the tournament to let go of coach Gernot Rohr after a string of subpar performances from the team, with former coach, Austin Eguavon taking the helm for the tournament.
Popoola in the statement said: “One UK parliamentary report recently noted that UK-Africa trade has ‘flat-lined’ and accounts for just 2.” The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control had on December 1, 2021 announced three new index cases of the Omicron variant, which was dubbed a variant of concern in the country. Atinuke Babatunde joined Mnet (Africa Magic) in 2014 as the Head of Channel for Africa Magic Entertainment (now Africa Magic Showcase).5 per cent of all UK trade. But before the COVID-19 outbreak, the world’s five fastest-growing economies were all African, and regional leaders like South Africa and Nigeria are likely to become superpowers of the global economy as we move towards the second half of this century. Speaking during a virtual press briefing, the WHO Director of Emergency Preparedness, Dr Abdou Laye Gueye, who spoke on behalf of the Regional Director, Dr Moeti Matshidiso, elucidated that the low vaccination drive had continued to fuel the variants, adding that the next wave might not be so forgiving as the Omicron variant. More needs to be done on both sides to take advantage of the opportunities on offer. In 2018, Africa Magic Epic channel was added to her portfolio of channels, and she drove the content acquisition strategy for the four channels. “As one of the world’s most influential and established business leader forums with royal endorsement dating back to 1906, the Institute of Directors is the ideal forum to develop opportunities for UK-based firms that want to establish and grow new business in Africa and vice versa. While it took around four weeks for the Delta variant to surpass the previously dominant Beta, Omicron outpaced Delta within two weeks in the worst-hit African countries.
“As a proud African, and on a personal note, I hope the establishment of this Special Interest Group will come to be seen as an important step to a free trade agreement between my country, Nigeria and the United Kingdom.” Currently, Britain has free trade agreements with Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, the Eastern and Southern African trade bloc (Mauritius, Seychelles and Zimbabwe), Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Southern African Customs Union and Mozambique (six countries, including South Africa) and Tunisia. The crucial pandemic countermeasure badly needed in Africa still stands, and that is rapidly and significantly increasing COVID-19 vaccination.
