Congratulations Sir! Well deserved.

But........... Oga if u look at the monarch legacies and antecedents whom this award was named after, u might be provoked into rejecting and returning the award.

He was booed at his funeral!

What they can never try in their own country, they will come to Africa to experiment with the active collaboration of some local idiots.

I see why you are angry. You think loans is to "tight" people down when they are a major driver of the economy. You also want to use banks for free without charges. Can you demand free service from your landlord or a store owner?
Anyway congrats to Elumelu.

Elumelu is not that Bright, he said it himself. Unmerited favour gang.


He is a product of the Boko-Haram, I-Better-Pass-My-Neighbour, Almajiri Nigerian Education system.

leopold made sure you love Jesus more than you love & Obey God. (Love)

Read Leopold letter to missionaries.

RIP to the millions Killed

Those of you telling him congratulations, I hope you know the horror our Congo brothers received in the hands of king Leopold. This is why it's important to teach history in school to prevent you people from reinforcing failures. Go read about it if you don't know. Tony Elumelu is an idiot, very embarrassing

This award is a Total disgrace .... I have lost complete respect for Tony Elumelu. This is ridiculous and toxic to younger generations.... (All because of stupid wealth )

After all the Belgians did to humiliate Congo and Africa

Read this

Leopold extracted a fortune from the Congo, initially by the collection of ivory, and after a rise in the price of rubber in the 1890s, by forced labour from the natives to harvest and process rubber. Under his regime millions of Congolese people died.

Leopold II implemented a forced-labour system in the Congo that was quickly copied by other European colonial powers. This brutal practice was a catastrophe for the population of the Congo and whole of Africa countries
