Commenting on the Awards, Omar Ben Yedder said: "This is the seventh year that we have organised the African Business Awards. We are grateful to Zenith Bank, GTBank, Agility and Cofina for supporting African Business magazine and IC Events in bringing about this year's awards. We have worthy winners and the work of both our winners and nominees shows what can be done on the continent with hard work and single minded determination. We would have liked to have seen more entries from the francophone world, but this may reflect the fact that English speaking countries in general have a more developed and thriving private sector."
