The HH Group Summit, held at the iconic Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja from June 1316, 2024, drew on the experience of board members of investee companies from sectors where HH invests: healthcare, power, energy, technolog y, financial services, hospitality, and real estate.

Also present were trustees of the Group’s philanthropy, the Tony Elumelu Foundation, which catalyses young entrepreneurs across Africa. The convening provided the opportunity to reinfo rce the Group’s strong governance practices and identify opportunities for inno vation and impact, as well as celebrating business achievements.

Speaking at the HH Group Summit, Tony O. Elumelu, CFR, Group Chairman, He irs Holdings, emphasised HH’s mandate to ‘build to last’ and to “build for impa ct”. He said: “Over the past decade, we have inculcated in our business the cri ticality of strong corporate governance practices. We only invest for the long t erm, strategically and patiently. These twin commitments are fundamental to our success; we are indeed building to last, redefining success in every sector we operate in, and demonstrating our purpose to improve lives and transform Africa”.

The HH Group Summit culminated in a closing ceremony and dinner, hosting i nfluential figures across Nigeria’s public and private sectors, including the Vice President of Nigeria, His Excellency, Senator Kashim Shettima, GCON, Federal Ministers, Ambassadors, policy makers and leaders of civil society.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Vice President Shettima remarked, “When t he history of Nigeria and indeed Africa’s banking history and revolution will be written, one name will stand out – having carved a niche for itself and engrave d its name on the walls of banking and Africa’s entrepreneurship.

Tony Elumelu has become an enigma, a banking colossus, a power industrialis t, and a force that cannot be ignored. He is one of our own who believed in Nig eria and threw his heart into it. He is a Nigerian economist, entrepreneur and i ndeed a philanthropist, who has given life meaning to millions of Nigerians an d Africans.”
