Everybody lives in awe of Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu, the chairman of BUA. Maybe it’s because of his brilliance and dazzling excellence. Perhaps it’s because he is as smooth as a stucco bathtub and yet a giant of a man, given to a life of quiet dignity.

Rabiu is the best thing going for corporate Nigeria – in the business sector to be precise.

Call him what you want, but recognize him for what he is: a futuristic magnate cum problem solver. And an effective one at that. He’s soft-spoken, but driven by a fierce determination to bring progress to his beloved Nigeria and the African continent.

Thus he demands change in a corporate Nigeria’s business sector by bringing ideas to the table. Creative, problem-solving ideas. the 2016 All Africa Industrialist of the Year at the 2016 All Africa Business Leaders Awards grand finale.

By his unusual exploits, Rabiu has charted a radical path to one of the Africa’s largest and most influential business organisations: BUA. His leadership is authentic, and his focus on equality is nothing short of revolutionary, a clarion call for the world of philanthropy and an inspiration to fellow billionaires working for a more just and loving world.

This is why he is a deserving recipient of the 2016 All Africa Industrialist of the Year at the 2016 All Africa Business Leaders Awards grand finale.

A statement by the company on Tuesday said that the award was conferred on Rabiu weeks after he won the 2016 West African Industrialist of the Year at the AABLA West African Regional Awards.

It explained that nine African best business leaders in various categories were celebrated at the 2016 AABLA organised in partnership with CNBC Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa. The statement said the winning business leaders were selected after an 11-month journey with the organisers of AABLA, which recognises Africa’s bold leaders and change-makers in East, West and Southern Africa.

While receiving the award, Rabiu reiterated his call on African individuals, businesses and governments to look inward and pursue greater investments within the continent. He was quoted as saying, “Africa has been presented with a unique opportunity to look inwards, tap our plentiful human, economic and intellectual resources, and also to forge a path of economic prosperity for the continent. This transformation starts with us the people and business leaders in a position to influence the change that we need.

“I remain committed to investing in and exploring Africa’s untapped opportunities in manufacturing, mining, agriculture and other business areas. I believe that in a few years to come, through our support, Africa will rise again and take its rightful place in world affairs.”
