Speaking on the economic potential of Africa at Europe’s biggest startup and tech event in Paris, Elumelu said the continent is a major region where there is evidence of investment.
“If you look at Africa from the point of view of investment, there is nowhere you make the kind of returns on investment that you make in Africa. I speak as someone who invests in Africa.
“In 2013, our group invested in the power sector. We invested in power generation. I don’t know anywhere in the world where you invest in power generation because it is highly capital intensive, and you break even and start making profit from year two to year three. It is only in Africa that this can happen.”
