Keynote Address at BACDA USA 2016 Convention.
Good evening Mr. President, and members of the Bakossi Community. Are you all enjoying yourselves tonight? I must say, this has been my first time attending this convention and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself.
When I was asked to speak here tonight, I was humbled. After speaking with your president, Dr. Akwensioge, I was immediately inspired by his vision and the mission of this organization.
Today I want to talk about our beloved continent, Africa. And I want to focus on the subject of “ Innovation our of necessity.” In 2013, Africa was labeled as the poorest inhabited continent in the world, by the World Bank. Despite this label, there were many economic indicators of growth and progression on the continent.
