BREAKING: Jim Ovia protests Xenophobia, withdraws from World Economic Forum - ITREALMS

Following the hypersensitivity of the issues surrounding the lives and well-being of Nigerian citizens living in South Africa and to contribute his voice against the poor state of security regarding foreign nationals living in Africa, the Founder/Chairman of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr. Jim Ovia has withdrawn from further activities at the World Economic Forum Africa 2019, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, reports ITREALMS.

Before taking his exit, Mr. Ovia stressed the need for youth empowerment and better government policies to curb continual attacks on persons living within and outside Africa.

He belaboured that until positive change towards collective growth happens on this front, the continent would not reach its potential.

Mr. Ovia also said that full support should be rendered in vocational education of the young persons living in not just Nigeria but Africa. 

According to him, the Jim Ovia Foundation has taken up a stance on this issue, having empowered over 3,500 students and entrepreneurs since its inception. 

He equally called on other members of the private sector to join hands and solve this menace plaguing the African continent.
