About the Award: This internship programme is Aig-Imoukhuede bringing action to his desire to inspire young people to do great things and not be left behind. In the book, he says:

“I hope that the story I am about to tell will be an inspiration to other young entrepreneurs who are setting out with big dreams, great visions and high hopes. It is a story that shows how you can build a world-class business in a relatively short time if you lay the right foundations, have good core values and do the right things. I believe that the story of Access Bank proves what is possible with strong corporate foundations, and I believe we must speak confidently about our story of transformation if we are to inspire others to achieve the same.”
