Commenting on the partnership, Professor Louis Nzegwu, Conference Chair for the Africa Retail Academy noted that he was pleased that discussions, which commenced in the middle of June 2023, had come to fruition with the signing of the Strategic Alliance Agreement. He further stated that the agreement, which took effect on September 1, 2023, brings into play the synergies of both organizations in harnessing people, data, analysis, and information towards the growth of the retail market space in Africa.

In response, the Chief Executive at ThePressNG, Ugo Obi-Chukwu aka Ugodre, complimented the Lagos Business School for all the work they are doing in developing and sharing knowledge, noting that this aligns with ThePressNG’ vision of “creating wealth through information”.

Going further, Ugodre acknowledged that a huge path to building Africa’s prosperity lies in the ability to harness the right data, develop data-driven strategies, and create policies that would enable governments, organizations, and the public to tap into opportunities for wealth creation through financial literacy.

In line with the agreement, both parties will work together to ensure that key players in the retail sector have access to relevant insights to enable better decision-making and to create the required regulatory framework and policies that will unlock the growth of the retail sector in Africa.
