Elumelu to deliver keynote address at ECOWAS mining forum

Tony Elumelu, chairman of the United Bank for Africa (UBA), has been scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the fourth edition of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) mining and petroleum forum.

According to a statement on Monday, the forum — which provides a platform for stakeholders in the mining and petroleum sectors of the ECOWAS — will hold from February 22 to February 24, 2024, in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Elumelu, who doubles as chairman of Transcorp Group, with extensive interests in energy and power, will be speaking on the theme – ‘Geo-extractive Resources and Technologies: What Pooling Strategies for Value Creation in West Africa.’

According to the statement, the speech is expected to highlight UBA’s increasing effort to support and develop the African continent through strategic investments in the key sectors of mining and petroleum.

“As a financial institution with presence in 20 African countries and active involvement in major continental development projects, it is the preferred partner for the event, underlining the bank’s commitment to the growth of mining and petroleum industry.” UBA said.

The ECOWAS mining and petroleum forum (ECOMOF 2024) is expected to attract over 2,000 participants from diverse sectors, including representatives from mining and oil industries, government officials, international and national investors, industry experts, ECOWAS delegates, and international organisations.
