The Group Executive Director of Nigeria’s leading conglomerate, BUA Group, Mr. Kabiru Rabiu, has been ranked second, only after Egyptian, Basil El Baz, on the ‘Choiseul 100 Africa’ list of future African Business Leaders by Institut Choiseul, reports ITRealms.
The institute, ITRealms gathered is a renowned French economic and political think-tank based in Paris and conducts ‘Choiseul 100 Africa’ in partnership with a leading publication, Jeune Afrique.
ITRealms reports that the 2017 rankings, boast of only 10 Nigerians, but has Kabiru Rabiu as the only Nigerian in the top 10.
The annual compilation by the French Institute is carried out through an original independent study that identifies profiles and ranks young African business leaders under the age of 40 from any of the 54 countries on the continent across various industries who will play a major role in the development of Africa in the near future.
Also ITRealms gathered that to classify the 100 leaders of tomorrow, the Choiseul Institute, through its panel of experts and specialists uses five sets of criteria: image and reputation, path and skills, power and function, influence and networks, potential and leadership.
These ‘Choiseul 100 Africa’ laureates are growing business leaders, successful entrepreneurs, investors, etc., who embody the dynamism and renewal of a whole continent and carry the hopes of an entire generation.
Other Nigerians on the 2017 list include Akinwunmi Akinfemiwa, Group Chief Executive Officer of Forte Oil at number 34 and Halima Dangote, daughter of the African richest man, Aliko Dangote and Executive Director of the Dangote Industries at 47th position.

An astute but amiable strategist, Kabiru Rabiu joined the family business in 2002 upon the completion of his studies as an Assistant General Manager of Nigerian Oil Mills based in Kano, Nigeria. He rose through the ranks to become the company’s General Manager and later became the Managing Director of BUA Oil Mills, Lagos - then the largest edible oil company in Nigeria.
